  • This HTML code demonstrates how to represent the progress of a task using the <progress> element.
  • The <progress> element is used to indicate the completion progress of a task.
  • Inside the <progress> element, the value attribute specifies the current progress value, which in this case is set to 50.
  • The max attribute specifies the maximum value of the progress, which in this case is set to 100.
  • The text "Downloading progress:" before the <progress> element provides a description or context for the progress indicator.
