Yep, you could replace iaxclient with a web-embedded softphone
like Corraleta SDK (ours) or Mozphone. (There are also a
couple of SIP ones, but you are using IAX already, so stick with it....)

Then when you click on a number in the web page it would call
that number for you.

You'd need to do a bit of javascript coding to tweak the look and feel
of Corraleta, but mostly people can get it the way they want pretty
