Tel tag

Are you on about the 'auto dial' or do you want it not to show.

Pretty sure the auto dial should just not activate on a desktop unless you have it assigned to something like skype.

It depends on the OS/browser you're using and/or what default action you've set up for it already. Safari for example will try and open Facetime by default. Generally they will try and do something because it's a hyperlink.

I normally just hide the link on desktop and show different mark up that isn't a hyperlink.

Can we disable tel for desktop alone? Like have it working on for mobile devices?
Many mobile browsers will guess that this is a number and add a telephony link anyway. So if you remove the tel: attribute is will still become an active link on a mobiles.
