Standard format for phone numbers?

I've recently noticed a wider variety in how phone numbers are presented, both in print and online, specifically with regard to spacing & punctuation.Examples: +1 (555) 123 4567 +1 (555) 123-4567 +1 555 123 4567 +1 555 123-4567 1.555.123.4567 555.123.4567 555-123-4567 (possibly others)Is there a single, standardized or generally recommended format for publishing phone numbers? If so what is it?Or is it really anything goes these days?
