Well, yes and no. It can control the actual incremental data values, but
doesn't show an indicator value, regardless of how that indicator is rendered. 

For instance, if the range increments by 1, which is the default, but you want
indicators at values of 5, this is additional information that cannot be
captured in CSS, because it's related to data, not rendering. 

In fact, some JS libraries already allow, or are working on allowing, the
developers to apply labels to these tick mark indicators.  This, again, could
be additional information--and information that is not appropriate to CSS. How
the different items are actually styled (color, width, font, etc) may be
specific to CSS, but not the values, themselves.
