Yeah in the e-mail adress yes, but this is actually in the subject line, like so:
href= mailto:adress@xxxxxxxxxx?subject=kabelskep

But of course the same restriction applies to everything in the href attribute.

I'm using outlook express. So it seems what I need is to convert to HTML entities instead of %HH, since outlook can't display those characters correctly.
But this is not possible in XSLT 1.0 so I'm screwed I guess. :)

And it seems to do what you said in XSLT 1.0 which is what
I'm using, for
instance it converts  the word "kabelskep" to  "Kabelsk%C3%A5p"

The thing is I want it to be seen as "kabelskep" in the newly
created mail
when you klick the mailto link. Right now I'm getting some
weird symbol
instad of "e". How can I achive this?

I'm afraid this is a question about the mail software that you're using, not about XSLT. I don't know the answer. It might not even be possible: as far as I'm aware, the internet RFC's for SMTP email only allow Ascii characters in email addresses.
