Hi Olivier,

I have coded that. It's not exactly what I said in my previous mail 
because it was quite complicated (it would have needed to modify all the 
classes producing warnings). Instead, I have added a piece of code in 
the method addWarning of the class Warnings: if the level of the warning 
to add does not correspond to the requested level, it is not added.
An example of how to use it is available in 
org/w3c/css/css/xhtml.properties.fr:
[[
no-error-or-warning: <div><h2>Aucune erreur ou avertissement (<!-- 
#ignored-warnings-count --> ignorés)</h2></div>
[...]
<!-- #warnings-count --> Avertissements (<!-- #ignored-warnings-count 
--> ignoré(s))
]]

I've partially modified the templates for other languages, but I prefer 
native speakers to do that ;)

What should I do with that? I don't think I have write access on 
dev.w3.org. I can give you a patch or you can give me access to the 
repository, as you wish :).
