Unhappy Browser displays 10 digit part numbers as phone link

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry for the newbie question. I am new at developing for the Blackberry. The web page I created for the browser displays a list of 10 digit part numbers in a table. Most, but not all, of the numbers have hyperlinks to bring up the phone dialer. Not a good thing. I tried adding an underline in the series of number like 123_4567890 and that cuts down on the number that have the link but does not totaly remove them.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I feel your frustration man. What I did was override the automatic link.
I'm not sure what the exact Telephone Link API is but I've been using THIS
<a href="tel:xxxxxxxxxx">Part Number</a>
to make a call.
So what I did to get around the issue was to write this:
<a href="#">Part Number</a>
Now I'm pretty sure this isn't the way to do it, but at least the way I did it, if they click on it, it'll go NOWHERE. I wish I knew how to get around it even showing up as a link.
