Skype is irritating me...

Are there any bright sparks out there who can tell me how to stop the telephone numbers in my website from converting into Skype format with the little Union Jack (over which you can hover and dial on Skype).

Seems I'm not the only person with this problem.


Anyone got any advice on how to overcome this…
