hi guys... recently I grabbed an php/mysql book. i'm on the php mail chapter. my goald is this:
to do a tell-a-friend page(html- which I made) and the php part.

Now... I managed to receive messages, on my mail, but I'd like to include HTML into that "tell a friend" result...u know...
subject..." SOS wants you to check out this website!" and the content in HTML.
I know I'm kinda' noob, but I'm trying my best...



You realise the code is incomplete...I've been hearing something about MIME....which I don't know what's about...pls have a bit patience and inlight me...
Thank you.

Suppose you have this variable from a form..


// Sending an html mail

		// Your recipient
		$to = ($_GET['friend_email']);

		// subject
		$subject = 'Tell A Friend';

		// message
		$message = 'HTML CODE'; // Insert your html code here

// To send HTML mail, the Content-type header must be set
			$headers  = 'MIME-Version: 1.0' . "\r\n";
			$headers .= 'Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1' . "\r\n";
			// Additional headers
			$headers .= 'From: Your Site Name <admin@yoursite.com>' . "\r\n";
			// Mail it
			mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
