Description Mounir Lamouri 2011-02-01 11:52:07 UTC
Currently "current value" [1] default value is -1 but value IDL attribute default value when the element is in the indeterminate state is 0. Having two default values seems really confusing.
The value IDL attribute should return 0 when the progress element is in the indeterminate state.

Opera: 0
Webkit: 1
Specs: -1

I think we should change the specs so it is 0.

Status: Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: The idea was that |progress.value = progress.value| should not change the progress bar from one kind to another, but since I screwed that up by not raising an error if you set it to -1, I guess it doesn't much matter. Fixed.

Checked in as WHATWG revision r5914.
