Formatting: phone numbers (again) and email signatures

Some formatting issues that need to be addressed. First of all, I received an email today in which the telephone number that appeared as part of the signature was formatted as follows: (0207 XX)X YYYY. This is without doubt the most bizarre grouping I’ve seen for a London number, with an artistic combination of spaces and parentheses.

Secondly, I have an irrational mistrust of people whose email signature is in a font other than that in the body of the email. The more script-like the font, the greater my sense of unease. Please try to stop using the standard suite of fonts offered by Windows to replicate your offline signature. Thank you kindly.
