Comment:
Is it intentional that floating point numbers beginning with a dot are not a
valid floating point numbers?  It took a fair amount of reading through the
spec to figure out why <input type="number" step=".5"> doesn't do what it
looks like it should do.  <input type="number" step="0.5"> of course works.
