Anyone know how to prevent a Smartphone from bringing up a dialer when taping on a phone number?
I have a panel displayed with an ASP Label containing a Phone Number.
When I tap on it on my Driod Phone it brings up the Droid Dialer. I don't want that to happen.
Here's how I'm displaying the Label..
<asp:Label ID="CallCellNum" runat="server"
style="z-index: 11; left: 72px; top: 120px; position: absolute; width: 152px;"

Found answer myself:
Android Browsers will dial and phone number that appeas on a web page if it looks like a phone number.
This can be disabled on a web page with the following Meta.
<meta name = "format-detection" content = "telephone=no" />
