meta name="format-detection" content="telephone=no"/

Enables or disables automatic detection of possible phone numbers in a webpage in Safari on iOS.
By default, Safari on iOS detects any string formatted like a phone number and makes it a link that calls the number. Specifying telephone=no disables this feature.
Available in iOS 1.0 and later.
Support Level
Apple extension.
So now you know. Fascinating isn't it. IOS 7 on iPAD and OSX Mavericks tries to detect telephone numbers in web pages. Utterly pointless and ruins a lot of our code.
