Well, it's a feature that Safari/SMS/email on the phone converts phone numbers into tappable links to make a call. I'd assume, to be as useful as possible, that the feature is coded to find a string of digits and to ignore punctuation and spaces, since various countries use () - , . + etc.
Myself, I'd rather have the feature turn too many things into phone numbers than miss converting a number I wanted to use because it was written in some idiosyncratic format.
But for whatever reason, your string of 10 digits in a row got understood by the feature as a phone number. Tell Apple:
You might consider changing your date format anyhow--1/2/2008 means something different in the US and the UK, for instance.
