Broad question about serving "clickable" fields on the internet

Hi Folks, having scanned these fora for answers, and finding some gems of information, I still find myself at a loss. Please help, knowing that I have only beginner's knolwedge.

What I have:

On Mac OS 9.1 platforms, a FM Server 5 machine, serving files to a FM Unlimited machine, which makes them accessible and viewable on the internet. One database that is being served and viewed is a contact database that includes a field with the email addresses of individuals.

What I believe to be true:

One can make the email address data clickable, similar to how HTML does with <a href="mailto:[email protected]"></a>. I think this can be done with CDML, but one can only use CDML if (1) Web Server Connector is operational, or (2) one has FM Developer. Am I warm?

What I don't know:

Must I use Web Server Connector to make the email links work? Must I have FM Developer to use CDML properly?

Thank you one and all...

"Must I have FM Developer to use CDML properly?"

Probably not. Developer has ODBC capabilities which you do not need for a web solution. Developer has the cdml reference database which is available online. The address for that is somewhere on this cdml forum. That will be the most help for your development of web solutions.
