Marketo form - only can type numbers in form

Has anyone else encountered this issue before? I embedded a Marketo form on a page within our website for driving leads. Sometimes when visiting the form you can only type numbers in the form fields. The form also has a 0 in it when this happens. Please note this form only has two fields, full name and email. When you refresh the page the form acts as expected. I have created and embedded Marketo forms before and never had this happen. Any help would be appreciated!

You can find the form here, under the results tab....

Re: Marketo form - only can type numbers in form

Because you have a keyDown event listener on all inputs that match the selector

input:not(.allowInput), textarea, select

blocking non-numeric input.

This of course matches the fullName field.

The only reason it appears to work after a refresh (which isn't always true, only sometimes) is because you have a race condition, so it's possible for the Marketo form to be finished loading after the keyDown event binding, in which case the newly injected form fields won't be restricted.
