Remove Microsoft Edge's phone number styling

I noticed that the new Microsoft Edge browser overrides my styles when it detects phone numbers:

<span class="phone">(123)123-1234</span>

See this jsfiddle (must be opened using Microsoft Edge :P).

This sort of intrudes upon the design of the website, and is rather obnoxious. Sure seems like a trait of a successor to IE :/

How can I override or disable this so my website users will not see it?

You can get rid of it by adding this meta tag in the header of your pages.

<meta name="format-detection" content="telephone=no">

Microsoft's documentation on this tag.

Hopefully there will be a better way to turn this off globally without bloating pages... Or better yet disable this feature by default.
