Why do you need an AppleScript for this ?

While in Safari, just type Apple-Shift-i and Safari does everything for you.

Apple-Shift-I doesn't include selected text in the email. It does the page title as the Subject, and includes a link, but the purpose of the script is to include some of the text from the page so that the recipient can see how (by your selected text) the site is worthy of visiting.

Yes, that is true. But i use the mouse a lot, not the keys.

So i have a bookmarklet (javascript) that is in the bookmarks bar. I just click on it, and it puts the subject and link in the body of the email and the subject in the title of the email. (it does not send any selected info however)

Since I send these types of emails to several people, i got tired of putting in the recipients. So instead of having one bookmarklet on the toolbar, i have a folder that contains several bookmarklets, each one preset for a particular person(s). I just select the one i want to use.

Here is a sample bookmarklet. Be sure to put in the email address you want to use after the mailto:

javascript:location.href='mailto:name@email.com?SUBJECT='+document.title+'&BODY='+document.title+'%5Cn%20%20%20%3C'+escape(location.href)+'%3E'

I use a similar bookmarklet, and I just found, as I tried today's hint, that the bookmarklet creates a plain-text email [perhaps because that's my preference], whereas the Safari Apple-Shift-i command creates a rich text email, which I don't prefer. Still a great hint and comments thread here, though.
