Default Dialing phone numbers on a web page with 9780 browser

Please Login to Remove!

We've just upgraded from 9000s to 9780s, so we now have the new browser than comes with OS6. With the previous browser, if there was a phone number shown on a web page, it showed it underlined, and we could just click on it to dial the number. Now it doesn't, and we can't.

This has been a major feature for us and has been available for the last 3 models of Blackberry. Is there any way to reenable the feature, or has it just gone?

Can anyone at least tell me what this feature was called?

Looks like that feature may be gone with OS6 or the web page must coded a different way based on the below.

Thanks for that. Looks like they have to be coded like this now:
HTML Code:
<a href="tel:00342445545">00342445545</a>
I'll have to see if I can get our web site changed. Not sure what I can do about all the other websites out there. My users are going to have to learn to copy and paste.

We coded our website specifically to work well with the 7250, and RIM was very enthusiastic about it at the time. Each successive model of Blackberry has trashed it more and more each time, with no warning. With this and the column mode problem, iPhones are going to be a very serious contender next time we upgrade.
