Yes, your tel:+61-2-61612176 does allow people to easily call the
phone number !   Congrats.

I would not want to put my email address on a web page either, for the
reason of SPAM.

I have now listed my phone number as "tel:" protocol at the bottom of 
every page of my site. Whose URL is my signature below. Perhaps you 
might test that for me? Please use a mobile phone to browse my home 
page. Then scroll to the bottom, and click the phone number. If my 
landline is unattended, an answering machine will take a message.

I haven't found any advice otherwise. Though advice-pages seem to 
contradict each other!

I baulk at providing my e-mail address in machine-readable form on my 
Web site! Expecting a torrent of spam.

I would like to know more about the practice of Web services using the

address element.

I had better learn to make footers.
