I've taken it one step further and added a bunch of javascript niceties, as well as use of an iframe for the submit, so you don't have to navigate away from the page. You have to paste this into something like "sendsms.htm" and send it to your phone. It's optimised for a N78 screen, but will most likely fit on others too. I sent this to my phone as a bluetooth message and then copied it into a different folder for easy access. This way it's still within the 'messaging' part of the phone... most convenient :)

I Like the idea, but if I leave the option list on the blank value and type a 'send to' number it submits the url with "mobilenumber=" ie. a blank number, so doesn't work in this case.
