It probably would be nice not to have unicode characters being thrown  
around inside the parser unnecessarily, as we currently need to look  
up the value of the denominator in both the <meter> and <progress>  
elements. However, in some cases of the <meter> element, returning  
the value associated with the denominator results in having needless  
lookups (such as when @max is specified on |meter|, but |value| is not).
