I just recall seeing a lot of buzz about the various input types and
support for them recently on the WhatWG mailing lists. I believe more
up-to-date versions of Firefox, Chrome and Opera will be validating
number fields for only numerical data too.

Apparently there is also an undocumented "feature" of iOS that triggers
the numerical input; putting the word 'zip' or 'phone' as part (or all)
of the input name, even if the type of the input is set to something
like 'text'
