HTML <progress> Tag

A task's completion progress is represented by the progress tag.

For optimum accessibility standards, always include the <label> tag! To display the progress of a work, use the <progress> element in combination with JavaScript.

It should be noted that the <progress> tag is not appropriate for displaying a gauge (e.g. disc space usage or relevance of a query result). Instead, use the <meter> tag to indicate a gauge.
