Auto Dial Phone Number Hyperlinks?

I know mobile phone browsers have this feature but is it possible for desktop computers? For example, I have a large excel file in skydrive full of phone numbers and instead of manually dialing the numbers I want to click the numbers to open skype or gmail's call phone feature and automatically call the number.

It might be possible to write a macro for Excel to launch an application when you click a particular cell, but you wouldn't be able to just automatically dial any phone number from any random source like the mobile OS provides.
Thanks for the response. You're right, it looks like "skype:#screenname#?call" and "gtalk:call?jid=#google email#" don't work without the screenname/email either.
