New HTML5 Tag Proposal: progress

In many data-driven websites like blogs, social networking sites or any other site with lot’s of content, pagination had become an important part. And there isn’t yet an tag for it. My proposal is a <pagination> tag, which makes it more semantic.

Currently, we are using <nav> but they is intended for some other purpose. Though pagination is navigation, it is a lot different from navigation in a web page. <pagination> can be used instead of <nav>.

I found a gist which shows how to semantically describe pagination and modified it to use the <pagination> tag. You can also see that I’ve updated the <counter> child with role=”pagination-counter”
