JL> Which is correct, progress or just loaded/total?

You get all of them. Sometimes the size is known in advance (eg in
HTTP, most of the time) other times not (in which case, total will be
-1). 'ProgressEvent's are generated during loading (how often is up to
the implementation). You must get events with progress values zero and
one, and should get intermediate values too.

Loaded and total are absolute, in bytes, while progress is relative
0.0 to 1.0

Dom Level 3 Core is really worth looking at, the more I study it the
more its clearly better than Lavel 2.

Yes, and there will be some meetings at the tech plenary next week to
discuss that. For example, other groups want namespace-aware
XMLEvents, of a small, typed DOM for Mobile, or an XPath mobile
