The meter element shows a value displayed in the context of the range of possible values.

It has local attributes: value, min, max, low, high, optimum, form .

The min and max attributes set the bounds for the range of possible values. These can be expressed using floating-point numbers.

The display for the meter element can be broken into three segments: too low, too high, and just right.

The low attribute sets the value under which a value is considered to be too low.

The high attribute sets the value over which a value is considered to be too high.

The optimum attribute specifies the "just right" value.
