Easy phone and email links in Xamarin.Forms labels

I recently saw a StackOverflow request for how to put an email and phone link into a Xamarin.Forms label. Knowing just how easy that is with Forms9Patch, I thought it would be helpful to share an example.

Note that this sample doesn’t work on the iOS emulator because the iOS emulator doesn’t support the tel: and mailto: schemas.

And, in Xamarin.Forms 2.3.5, this is going to be even easier because its XAML will add support for the <CDATA> tag. Forms9Patch has been built in anticipation for this change and will mean a XAML version of the above page will be quite nice.
