Tel: <a href="tel:+18057460079">805-746-0079</a>
<a href="facetime://8057460079">Facetime Us</a>

I add the Facetime link, not because I want to be contacted via Facetime but, because clicking the default tel format on a Mac causes the Mac to try Facetime but the number format is not correct. The links above look like the following:

Tel: 805-746-0079
Facetime Us
