[resolved] type="email" should be used for email input on comments (instead of type="text") (2 posts)

    There are text input fields within WordPress with type="text", I'd like to suggest that they instead use type="email" so the correct keyboard is displayed on some mobile devices and also the form field can be validated in modern web browsers. This is a standard HTML5 feature and is backwards compatible (older versions of IE simply treat it as type="text".
