Since i do most of my surfing from home on an ipad I especially like the email form attribute which switches your virtual keyboard into a customized email input keyboard for forms requiring addresses . . . At no cost to non-html5 browsers.

The article also includes some other handy modifications to form inputs including data sliders and javascript controls.

This is cool, as most things with HTML5, so I've added it to this page: http://www.swhsupply.com/subscribe.htm, but since, my only Apple is an iPod I can't really say if it works, though I can say that it doesn't work with my Droid. sad.gif

Have you installed Skyfire? It supports some of HTML5.

Just did, and it appears that neither Skyfire nor Opera Mobile support it... yet. I suspect that it's just a matter of time before it's universally supported. It's a small thing, but as you well know, it is convenient.

Cool! Thanks for the test!

Though I'm not exactly happy with the way the menu displays in an iPad. I'll have to address that.
