Default Making an email address link

Although this seems like a fairly simple thing to do (as I thought) I seem to be racking my brain trying to get this to work. I set up a database and one of the fields of information the end user must fill out is their email address.

When you view the person's full profile, I would like to output the email address, which is retrieved from the database, as a link. I keep getting VB errors such as Expected ')' or Expected end and I can't seem to figure out the problem...I've when over it and over it again and my syntax seems to be fine.

Below is a snippit of what I have so far, any help is greatly appreciated, I have meeting in a half hour and would really like to get this working!

        Response.Write"<td width='100' valign='top'>"
Response.Write"<b>Email: </b>"
        Response.Write"<td width='600' valign='top'>"
        Response.Write ""
        Response.Write "<a href mailto="rst ("Email")">rst ("Email")</a>"
        Response.Write ""
