Phone numbers have a URI identifier of "tel" , useful for protocol handlers that understand
VOIP or faxes.
<span class="vcard"><span class="fn">Bob Jonkman</span>, <a class="tel" href="tel:+1-416-555-
This ought to be recognized as a phone number by speech readers both by the hCard class="tel"
as well as the "tel" URI, and provides a link for your favorite VOIP software to act on.
Of course, widespread adoption is not yet widespread...
