Safari recognizes the phone numbers and styles them automatically, making them links, and so they will take these styles:

a {
display: block;
width: 197px;
background-color: #444444;
border-left: 1px solid silver;
border-right: 1px solid silver;
border-bottom: 1px solid silver;

To disable that sort of thing, add this to your header:

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