Very worth reading
The script fails for two reaons. First, the action elment in the form tag should have an equals sign, >>action"mailto:email@example.com"<< should read >>action="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org"<<.
And, in a real script, you would want a CGI script to accept the data and store it (or email it to you). When you fix the typo, your browser may, or may not, send an email because this is non-standard. And some users may have a chance to review and edit the contents of that email. So, a better example would be: >>action="/cgi-bin/save_results.cgi"<< would call a hypotetical CGI script called "save_results.cgi" located in the "/cgi-bin" directory.
