If you have a form with an html5 type for one of it's fields, for instance the very useful "type='email'", trying to assert the presence of the field (and presumably set it) fails. This is different behavior from pretty much all browsers, which at least recognize such fields at type=text, even if they don't implement html5, and degrade gracefully.

Example html page to test:

<html>
<body>
<form action='' method='get' name='whatever'>
<input type='email'>
<input type='submit' value='submit'>
</form>
</body>
</html>

example test case:

class TestHtml5 extends WebTestCase {

function testThatHtml5EmailFieldIsDetected(){
$this->get(BASE_URL.'simpletesttest.html');
$this->assertField('email');
}

}
?>

    I tried the patch below, but it didn't have the intended effect for some reason.
