    On the last page of a website I made for a competition, I put a phone number, fax number, and our team member numbers for the competition. On a computer they look fine but on an iPad the font is messed up and they are put into boxes as if the iPad doesn’t have that specific font installed.


    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">

    (Expecting a share of the prize if you win the competition)
