    I am trying to programatically embed an email hyperlink in the text of the RichText control in the report_detail section of a report.  Here is what the code looks like:

    RichTextNotice.Text = "e-mail us at <a href=mailto:" & CompanyEmail & ">" & CompanyEmail & "</a>." & " Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions."

    The report is being run as a PDF.  When the report displays, the email link does not appear as .  Instead it displays as

    <a href=mailto: </a > (without the underline).

    Is there anyway to accomplish this?
