Subject Re: [OT] Using jsp/serlvets to track clicking
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2009 21:00:32 GMT
Well, a very generic way of getting a hold of a "click"  in the kind  
of setting you're describing
would be to an an "onclick" to the link, invoking some Javascript  
doing whatever you want.
Maybe something like   <a href="tel:5555555555  
onclick="myCalltrackingCode();">here</a> to listen!
Almost all html entities support onclick.
