[Q] Display name with phone number via HTML link

I would like to create a link on a web page that, when clicked, displays a name for the phone number along with the phone number.

For example, suppose I have the following link:

<a href="tel:555-555-5555">(555) 555-5555</a>

I would like to display "My Company" when you click on the link in the phone dialer.

On WP7, for example, the above link would result in "Unknown Contact". However, I'm sure there's a parameter that we can pass to make this work, as searching using Bing for a local business will pass that business name to the dialer app even if the business is not in your contacts.

I'm wondering if anyone has a solution for this issue. This may be OS dependent... I've looked through the standard for the "tel" URI, but I couldn't find any info regarding this issue.
