In Mobile Safari on the iPhone, Firefox, etc., the alert will read "96840664702". If I point webview (using the iPhone emulator or loading a test app onto the iPhone) to the same page, the alert will read:
<a href ="tel:96840664702" x-apple-data=detectors="true">96840664702</a>
How can I globally disable the data-detectors? I tried a couple meta-tags…
<meta name=”format-detection” content=”telephone=no”> <meta name="x-" http-equiv="x-rim-auto-match" forua="true" content="none">
… but they didn't work. I couldn't find a reference for a meta tag that specifically mentioned Apple's detectors.
Since it works on the iPhone when I use Safari (vs. as a Titanium app), I assume there's a webview property I don't know about, but there's nothing listed in the API documentation under Titanium.UI.Webview.
