HTML in Desktop.mail(URI)?

Has anyone ever used the Desktop.mail(URI) method to generate an e-mail and successfully used HTML within the e-mail body?

I know this is possible using the JavaMail API, but I'm running into problems with that given my firm's implementation of heavy security around Microsoft Exchange.

Right now this is my simple code:

However, the body of the e-mail actually shows the HTML tags and does not format the text as intended. I feel like I'm missing something obvious. As a side note, I really wish attachments were possible using the Desktop.mail(URI) method.

Any guidance is appreciated very much.

Thank you,
Ranch Hand

I notice that it is rather incomplete html you're writing there (no <body> tag for example). Not sure if that matters in this particular case.


Edit: StackOverflow lists an answer that in the mailto body you have to use plaintext.
What does a metric clock look like? I bet it is nothing like this tiny ad:
