He, forget my stupid suggestion with the script attribute. As Fantasai 
pointed out, this is already in the spec (by reference) as inputmode.

So it would be:

Name(Kanji): <input type="text" inputmode="kanji" />
Name(Kana): <input type="text" inputmode="kana" />
Tel: <input type="text" inputmode="latin digits" />
Memo: <textarea/>
