How far do you go?
Numbers only.
And back space, enter / return - sign, decimal separator, thousand separators..
Is blank zero, or zero blank. Auto rounding, to what precision. Scientific notation. Hex data entry....

Just create a component of your own, use that instead of the standard textbox. You can get rid of all the stuff you don't need like multi line wordwrap, you can default to middle right, you'll leran more doing this than f;ing abot with onkeypress event handlers all the tme.

If it's too much hassle you can buy or probably download one for free. Careful though, some are badly implemented drivel, or do about eighty other things you don't need.
