Q. Safari on iPhone automatically creates links for strings of digits that appear to the telephone numbers. I am writing a web page containing an IP address, and Safari is turning that into a phone number link. Is it possible to disable this behavior for a whole page or an element on a page?
A. This seems to be the right thing to do, according to the Safari Web Content Guide for iPhone:
<meta name=”format-detection” content=”telephone=no” />
If you disable this but still want telephone links, you can still use the “tel” URI scheme.
