Automatically hyperlinked numbers on iPads

The Safari browser on the iPad has added a ‘feature’ where numbers are automatically hyperlinked, so that the number can be phoned just by clicking on the link.

All well and good, until you display a number that isn't a telephone number, such as a serial number or a customer identifier.

To stop this irritating behaviour put the following tag in your master page or page header:

    <meta name="format-detection" content="telephone=no">
