Skype plugin is altering our html for a web 2.0 website. How do we prevent this from ever happening?

Skype has a nifty thing that reads your html for phone numbers and inserts a little "click here to call" button/icon.

This really alters our html in an unflattering way and users will assume it is by design. We spent a lot of money with graphic artists to create our website brand, and this alteration is unacceptable.

I could prevent it by doing this:

<span>1(923<span>)231-</span>1234</span>

But i would prefer a solution such as

<span style="goawayskype">123-123-1234</span>

Does anyone know if such a command exists?

I have heard nor found any way to tell Skype to ignore the number.  The only thing I can do is tell people to disable the Skype add-on or mangle the numbers.

Here you go... add this to the head section of your site.  You may need to remove the trailing foward-slash to preserve XHTML/HTML compliance.
