revGoURL "mailto" bug ?

I'm using revGoURL to send eMails to Apple Mail as follows;

put "mailto:?"& lSubjectTxt & "&" & lAddresses & "&" & lBodyTxt into lMailMsg
revGoURL lMailMsg

It all works OK except that if I use an ampersand "&" or a percentage sign "%" in lBodyTxt then revGoURL will not send lMailMsg to the mail client (Apple Mail).  If I stick to plain text everything works fine. There may be other symbols that create the problem, but these are the two I have found to date.

Anybody got any ideas ?

Thanks, Bob...
