Use of XSD number types is inconsistent with numbers in HTML

ITS 2.0 says things like: “An optional termConfidence attribute with
the value of a rational number in the interval 0 to 1 (inclusive). The
value follows the XML Schema decimal data type with the constraining
facets minInclusive set to 0 and maxInclusive set to 1.”

XSD number types allow leading and trailing whitespace. HTML-native
number-valued attributes–such as those on <input type=range>–don’t.

For consistency with the rest of HTML, please use the HTML number microsyntaxes:
