I've broken the progress indicators out into child pages of their  
respective components. To put one on a page you just need to use the  
{include} tag.  You can see an example of this by going to the 
  page, where they are all compiled using the {include} tag.

You will also notice some styling differences. As per Alisson's  
suggestion I have made the words, in the table, links. The indicators  
themselves are different now, thanks to some code from Jacob.
