Currently, String and all Number types are lumped together because they use the same component, a TextField.
However, it is reasonable that they should be differentiated; for example, numeric fields will typically be styled to right justify the fields, whereas text fields are typically left justified.
Numbers should be data type "number" and have their own edit and display blocks.
