Validating text field
Other HTML5 input types include: -related options do have an effect at least in Opera, with pop-up calendars and other devices appearing to assist with input. But as you see, lots of strange looking URLs are actually valid.
While it would be great to see something like this in every browser, for now you probably need to stick with the ubiquitous Java Script plugins. Arjen, You're correct: and it's not just the plus sign ( ), although I have to admit, I've never seen that used in an email address before.
Again, not very helpful, but it will stop people trying to input their email address or other such nonsense. Careful examination of the RFCs associated with email addresses has been conducted repeatedly and has been proven to require the use of recursion in order properly determine the validity of an email address using the full set of RFC specifications.
As mentioned above, we can improve on this by making use of the are already implicit so the input has to match the entire expression. If anyone wants to contribute a more thorough expression to test for valid email or url format, feel free to post it using the Feedback option above.. Since it is not possible to recurse when using a regular expression it is also not possible to create a truly accurate regex for doing email address validation.
If they click the input, it will activate the input. It's basically the secret selector for testing if an input currently has a value or not.
There is no IE or Firefox support though, which is particularly difficult to navigate around.

So something along the line of [email protected] would be perfectly valid! Anyone out there know how to adjust the url validation so that it will accept inputs in the following format: no need to force a user to input or https:// You can find a comparison of some interesting regexes for validating URLs here.We have a separate article with details on validating passwords using HTML5, including Java Script code for customising the browser generated alert messages. You just need to pick one and then remove the portion that detects the protocol (xxx://).
Using a service such as Spritebaker or other techniques, the above style settings become: The above code can now be copied directly to your CSS style sheet. :[\x01-\x08\x0b\x0c\x0e-\x1f\x21\x23-\x5b\x5d-\x7f] | \\[\x01-\x09\x0b\x0c\x0e-\x7f])*") @ (?
