Virtual/screen keyboard support #80

AFAICS there is no on-screen keyboard support in the Emscripten SDL2 port, which is a problem on mobile platforms.

There doesn't seem to be a browser API to control the virtual keyboard (or maybe I missed it?), so we could:

  • re-implement a basic keyboard (preferably not in HTML, since it would be hidden in full-screen mode) or
  • trick the browser into displaying the virtual keyboard by focusing on a <input type="text"> element somehow
  • other ideas?
