Hi Everest!!
Hope this will help you :)
function storeCaret (x) {
 if (!document.all) {return}
  textEl = x
  if (textEl.createTextRange)
     caretPos = document.selection.createRange();


function update (field,event,precision22) {

var isIE = document.all?true:false;
var isNS = document.layers?true:false;
var key = (isIE) ? window.event.keyCode : e.which;
var obj = (isIE) ? event.srcElement : e.target;

if ( (event.keyCode >47&& event.keyCode <58)||event.keyCode ==46)
  var icaretPos = (caretPos) ? caretPos : textEl.length;
  icaretPos.text = "|";
   theValue = textEl.value;
  var arr=theValue.split("|");
  toTheRight = arr[1].split(',')[0];
         dec_left=temp_original.substring(dec_right+1,temp_ original.length)
                    if(event.keyCode!=46&&dec_left_length<((precision2 2)+1))
                            { event.returnValue = true;}
                           { event.returnValue = false;}

        if((toTheRight.indexOf(".")>=0)&&event.keyCode ==46)
                     {event.returnValue = false;}
     caretPos.moveStart("character", -1);
  event.returnValue = false;




<body >
<td>only2Digits after decimal<input name="txt" onkeypress="storeCaret(this);update(this,event,2)" ></td>
<tr><td>only5Digits after decimal<input name="txt2" onkeypress="storeCaret(this);update(this,event,5)" ></td>

It will only allow decimal(./dot) ,no other characters.
You can specfiy number of decimal digits
You can enter other number after decimal
You can't put more than one dot(.)

Please a look on the following link too

Cheers :)
