Opening an new task in edit mode and prepopulate it with values

I want to define a buttom (ccontrol)  that opens a task of a certain recordtype in
edit mode and pre-pupulate certain custom and standard fields.
Must be something like

var URL = "/" + id + "/e?retURL=/{!Contact_ID}&who_id={!Contact.Id}&what_id={!Contact.AccountId}"

How do I pass the record type?

What is the syntax for the name of my custom and for other standard fields?

What must I also look after?


Is there any kind of doku? FAQ where I get more Information?

Thanks for any hint....
