Whitelist <meter> element in wikitext
Open, LowPublic

Description

HTML5 introduces a new <meter> element. There are some simple examples on https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_meter.asp and https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/meter

It should be whitelisted in the parser so that users can use it in wikitext. One potential use case is https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mall:Framg%C3%A5ngsstapel that currently uses a table and parser functions.

W3schools points out that progress bars should use <progress>, not <meter>. A better use of <meter> would be for Template:Rating.
