Can someone please tell me what this annoying "half-width number" is in the sentence below? My keyboard's button comes in full, none of them is cut in half.
電話番号の上5桁は半角数字でご入力ください。

See?

Just input with your keyboard set to English layout and you'll be fine.

It's already in English layout since it's bought in my homecountry where roman alphabet is used.

If the numbers come out looking like my second line you're fine.

Never mind it's solved now, it turns out that the form I am filling in doesn't accept any space which was carried along during copy-pasting.
