somehow datalist doesn't sound appropriate. I am talking about <input
type="range" ... />

this would be a visual feature in addition to "snap-to".  it could potentially
either
- put tic marks on the snap to steps
OR
- put tic marks in (either a finer and/or coarser than the snap-to, actually
independent of the snap-to).  If the user makes a mistake, the snapto-grid
won't match up with the tic marks.  but in this case you do have major and
minor tic marks to go with your UI.



if snapping to steps is an issue, then there's the boolean attribute I
outlined.



A boolean called ticmarks.  this would simply turn on tic marks at all the
steps. in CSS this could be called 
input-range-ticmarks:[none];
input-range-ticmarks:display;


OR

ticmajorstep=realNumber (some sort of number)
ticminorstep=realNumber (some sort of number)
this could be implemented in CSS as 
input-range-ticmarks-majorstep:[none];
input-range-ticmarks-majorstep:num;
input-range-ticmarks-minorstep:[none];
input-range-ticmarks-minorstep:num;


OR

ticmajorstep=realNumber (some sort of number)
ticstep=realNumber (some sort of number)
this could be implemented in CSS as 
input-range-ticmarks-majorstep:[none];
input-range-ticmarks-majorstep:num;
input-range-ticmarks:[none];
input-range-ticmarks:num;


I know nothing about how datalist should be displayed.
