Like this:
<a href="mailto:jr*@foo.com">jr*@foo.com</a>

Or did you mean something else?

Yes,

here</a>.
i.e. like for mailto we write inside anchor tag i want to write another
url inside it like i hv written .
can it be possible?

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you want to do. The tag you have
written above will insert a link with the text "click here" in your
document and most browsers will show a tool tip with the text "jrn" if
you put the cursor on top of the link. If you click the link, the
browser will attempt to load a file called "jr*@foo.com" located in the
same directory as your document. If what you wanted instead was to
send an email to jr*@foo.com you should use
<a href="mailto:jr*@foo.com" title="jrm">click here</a>
though using "click here" as the link text is considered bad style as
it is redundant.

Further, it is not possible to put an A tag inside another A tag, as
that is not meaningful.
