How to force keyboard with numbers in mobile website in Android


Question

I have a mobile website and it has some HTML input elements in it, like this:

<input type="text" name="txtAccessoryCost" size="6" />

I have embedded the site into a WebView for possible Android 2.1 consumption, so that it will also be an Android application.

Is it possible to get the keyboard with numbers instead of the default one with letters when this HTML input element is focused?

Or, is it possible to set it for the whole application (maybe something in the Manifest file), if it is not feasible for an HTML element?

<input type="number" />
<input type="tel" />

Both of these present the numeric keypad when the input gains focus.

<input type="search" /> shows a normal keyboard with an extra search button

Everything else seems to bring up the standard keyboard.
