News 1.44: UTF-8 encoding in mailto

My XOOPS has charset UTF-8, and I use News 1.44 UTF8:

My problem is associated with URL type mailto (Send this Story to a Friend).

When user will click on this link then the e-mail client (such as outlook express) is opening with filed inputs: to,subject and body.

All is great until I will put special characters like Chinese. Microsoft Outlook Express produce some rubbish.

Did anybody know how to specify charset for those parameters like body,subject that e-mail client will understand the character encoding which I used.

Is there any additional attribute like encode to set in this URL.

Thanks a lot for help
