Numerical sequences with dashes autoformat to links when pages are saved on Confluence On Demand

I've just started using Confluence On Demand, so appologies for a novice question.

I'm having an issue with entering in number sequences into pages like phone numbers or ISBN Numbers.

For Example: 1-123-123-4567

In the editor, everything looks as it should, but as soon as I save the page, the "123-123-4567" portion of the number becomes an html link.

Is there a way to manually edit the HTML of the page or am I just missing a step.

I've played with the various formating tools including the "No Format" Macro which does work, but this doesn't seem like the best solution.

In addition, I've verified via the source code that Confluence is additing the additional formating to make it a link.

Any help is appreciated.

I think that is a bug. It is trying to link it as a JIRA issue id, but it is not even the right format. Submit a support request. In the meantime, you can escape the dash by using 123\-456. Use insert wiki markup since I don't know of a way to escape things in the new editor :(.

Great Thanks! I'll submit a support request and thank you for the suggested workarounds.
