Form Controls in HTML: Displaying Measurement


The <meter> element is used to display a control that shows a gauge. Note that its function is different from that of the <progress> element and should be seen as displaying a measure of fullness, emptiness of capacity, speed, and so on. Table 5.15 lists the attributes that it supports, while Figures 5.49 and 5.50 show how it is used and also depict the result.
