I've added <progress> to the draft too.

At the moment I support a range of "%" characters in the body of the 


...etc. This seems to be a good thing to me. However, I currently also say 
that these work in the "value" attribute. I'm thinking that we should make 
"value" be purely a floating point number. This would dramatically 
simplify the processing model and would also let the DOM attributes simply 
reflect the content attributes -- right now I'm not sure how to do the DOM 
attribute of "value" because of this.

What do people think? Is it valuable to be able to do:

   <progress value="5%"/>

...instead of either of these:

   <progress value="0.05"/>
