Tag WordPress version numbers for easier parsing

Description

Hi,

We, wpvulndb.com, currently parse the following pages for the WordPress versions:

https://wordpress.org/download/releases/
https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Versions

This is to ensure that we have a list of accurate WordPress versions from an official source.

It is currently possible to parse the pages, however, it would be much easier if the version numbers were tagged with CSS classes, so that they could be trivially parsed.

For example, currently it looks like so in the HTML:

<td>4.9.8</td>

My proposed change would be to add a CSS class for easy parsing:

<td class="version-number">4.9.8</td>

This would make it easier for others to keep accurate track of the official WordPress versions.

Thanks,
Ryan
