I ran out of arguments. I understand the proposal rejected? Or maybe what any alternatives? I understand an option to add an attribute to manually specify a delimiter is not considered here. This option would allow in the case when we display year, specify a empty delimeter for thousands.
1234 <input type = "number" ... /> - use local settings for delimeter 1,234 <input type = "number" thousand = "" ... /> - use for removing thousand delimiter 1234 <input type = "number" thousand = "-" ... /> - use for custom thousand delimiter 1-234 Maybe such variant will suit to all? -- Best Regards, Mike Gavrilov. 2015-10-15 18:45 GMT+05:00 Boris Zbarsky <bzbar...@mit.edu>: > On 10/15/15 2:35 AM, Михаил Гаврилов wrote: >> >> Let's first decide what numbers is meant by number type. > > > Good luck with that.
