I've got a datalist I'm using to display data, but it all comes out as plain text. How can I format the email to be a link to that address and the phone number to be say (xxx) xxx-xxxx? Probably be bolding the displayname too.

Thanks.

<ItemTemplate>
                            DisplayName:
                            <asp:Label ID="DisplayNameLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("DisplayName") %>'></asp:Label><br />
                            OfficeLocation:
                            <asp:Label ID="OfficeLocationLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("OfficeLocation") %>'></asp:Label><br />
                            Phone:
                            <asp:Label ID="PhoneLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Phone") %>'></asp:Label><br />
                            Email:
                            <asp:Label ID="EmailLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Email") %>'></asp:Label><br />
                            AttorneyType:
                            <asp:Label ID="AttorneyTypeLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("AttorneyType") %>'></asp:Label><br />
                            <br />
