Or alternatively rev="owner".

(Try also adding a title="some text" attribute, lynx does someting with
with it.  Try also giving a URL other than mailto: and see what

But your example does not have a valid mailto URL.  At least escape
the spaces.  I would also put the (full name) comment after the
address, not before it, since that's the common form. 

Whether or not a given mailto URL works for a given user depends on
whether the program configured as SYSTEM_MAIL / SYSTEM_MAIL_FLAGS
understands the address.  I assume that not all such programs are
equal.  To minimize the chance of breakage for *someone*, I would
only use the most bare form, i.e. "mailto:address@hidden";.
