Make phone numbers easier to read AND more useful to Excel

Put gaps or hyphens into telephone numbers, otherwise Excel thinks they are ordinary numbers, and removes the first zero.
Gaps also make it easier for people to read the number.
(Gaps between words were introduced by Irish scribes in the seventh and eighth centuries, leading to far greater readability of the Latin texts. You might think: “but that’s so eighth century”, but stick with it, it could take off!).
