"ymsgr://" opens Yahoo! Messenger too, if its installed.

Done a little more experimenting. "ymsgr:sendim?somebody" will send an IM to somebody if Yahoo! Messenger is already running.

Any idea how this works with AIM/iChat ?

aim://xxxx -> opens ichat


but how do we open a dialog with a new user ? How can I force someone to start a conversation with me ?
aim://username -> doesn't work

The answer is found in this Wikipedia article! To create an iChat or AOL Instant Messenger message destined for "notarealuser", use this URL:

aim:goim?screenname=notarealuser
This will specify a message also:

aim:goim?screenname=notarealuser&message=This+is+my+message
