[thelist] Getting iPhone to dial-on-click

It was my understanding that the iPhone should automatically parse out  
telephone numbers and make them click-and-dial sort of deal, but I'm  
having a hard time getting that to happen.

The phone number as-is does not work, yet is in (555) 555-5555 format.

The tel://+1-555-555-5555 formatted link doesn't seem to work. And  
even if THIS one did, I'd like it to dial locally as well, since the  
website is local to a specific area, meaning not needing to dial 1  

How to I get an iPhone to recognize and autodial a phone number from a  
website's page?
