Comment:
I'm a bit in trouble on what type to apply for zip- postcodes. I would use
type=number, but then I cant use the maxlenght attribute. While using
type=text there are no max min attributes. No matter what type I choose, none
of them works for zip- postcodes. I would suggest to add a type=zip to the
specifications.
