    • New: Forbid use of HTML5 input type="number" as it causes problems with I18N. Example: The behaviour of the input field will change with the language you have selected for the GUI. When English is selected, you can enter the amount as 0.00, but if German is selected, you are enforced to enter as 0,00 - which causes trouble as Koha doesn't understand this. One possible solution is to use a pattern match instead (<input type="text" pattern="\d+(\.\d{2})?"...). The number type is currently used for entering manual invoices and credits and should be removed.
