telephone number detection
I'm working with a JS based website template(build.rebeccajankowskimd.com) When pulled up on an iphone any numbers that the phone detects as a potential phone number isn't displayed. It allocates the space but, doesn't display the number.
If I add the following to the head of my index.html file it displays the numbers just fine. But of course, the numbers aren't "linkable" to initiate a call to the number.
<meta name = "format-detection" content = "telephone=no" />
What is it about JS based websites that require disabling format-detection in order for a phone to display the number?
Any ideas? I'd really like the phone numbers to be "linkable" when a user is on a mobile device. All suggestion, tips, advice will be appreciated.
You check the browser type, then if its a mobile, redirect to mobile based web code.

Thanks for the reply but, my other question still stands. Why does the mobile device, when detecting a telephone number, not display the information in a js based website? The mobile devices display detected phone numbers just fine in normal html websites.
Because it detects it being a telephone number it doesn't show it; I find that interesting.
