Notes

  • 1

    Buggy. Email scrolls to the end when space bar is pressed. This can be fixed by wrapping the <input> in <ul role="presentation">.

  • 2

    Buggy. Screen jumps when input is in focus.

  • 3

    Buggy. A number of android clients will not show the keyboard when the input is clicked. Copy and pasting text works.

  • 4

    Not supported. <textarea> is transformed into <notextarea>.

  • 5

    Buggy. Interacting with the element submits the form it belongs in.
