It is. callto://<skypename>, IIRC.
When you use callto, then you will start Netmeeting on a PC where Skype is not installed.

You should use the skype://" target="_blank<skypename>

I could be wrong, but I'm not sure the phpBB Jabber class will work with Google Talk. Google uses TLS, and from what I remember of the Jabber class phpBB's was based on, there were problems getting it to TLS servers. That was a while ago though, so I might not be up with the times.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you mean TLS?

Google Talk is Jabber, isn't it? (someone already said that, sorry)
I too would like to get Skype as one of the options with a real icon/button.
