Input type="text" being erased

I am trying to get welcomments to work. one part about it is to implement the comment form.

when I put <input type="text">... in my template the zola template renderer removes the type="text", but strangely not for type="email" is this expected or a bug?

ah found the culprit Add option to disable removing `type="text"` on `<input>` elements · Issue #134 · wilsonzlin/minify-html · GitHub - disabling html minification solves the issue
