It is a rare day at work when I don’t do anything related to forms. Be it creating forms from scratch, modifying existing forms, handling user interaction with them, whatever. I work with forms a lot. So that’s why one of the things in HTML5 I’m looking forward to the most is the overhaul of the elements and attributes used to create forms.

Among other form-related things, HTML5 adds a whole bunch of new values for the input element’s type attribute:

  • datetime
  • date
  • month
  • week
  • time
  • datetime-local
  • number
  • range
  • color
