Hi Richard

As you have been investigating Skype, I am sure you will have come across
Skype's html protocol options...

<a href=skype:"&SkypeName &"?call>"& SkypeName &"</a>

Yes, this rings the computer rather than the phone, but may be a solution
especially as Skype-Skype phone calls cost nothing. I have it implemented in
my own Contacts system along with the ?chat option and it does have the
advantage of being cross-platform.

(I hope the thtml tag angle brackets will display above as expected)
