The only reason i brought this up as i viewed these on my phone this
morning and wasn't sure what they each stood for. And i agree, a legend
isn't the solution as having to navigate to another page just to view it
won;t work.

Just a thought, what about something like wrapping the text around the
indicator stating what it stands for, something like this [1]? Having it
split up around the top and the bottom? I will try do a quick mock-up later
today with the examples you sent to see how it looks.
