Default Special BB HTML Tags?

Please Login to Remove!

I am developing a web apllication to access by the BB. my Question ist, if there are any special HTML tags for the BB Browser to access the phone or calendar?
When a number is in a special format, the BB Browser knows that it is a phone number and you can call it. But how can I force a number to be a phone number?

I didn't find anything in the developer guides.

No, you will most likely have to take a look at MDS Services and the MDS Runtime for PIM integration.

Try "tel:" - no quotes.
