Hello, Olivier.

On the Markup Validation Service and CSS Validation Service pages there are
notes with the identifier in bold text. Since the statement we are
discussing is "indeed a reminder," why not simply state it?

<b>Reminder:</b> "To work as intended . . ." See the W3C Markup Validation
Service for more information on validating your markup.

As Bjoern noted in his first reply:

The CSS validator is a free, open source tool that is relying a lot on 
its user community for development.
Feedback is very much welcome, and especially for cases where the 
wording could be improved, it is considered polite and constructive to 
not only point at the wrong wording, but also suggest a better 

Can you think of any wording for that note that would make it clear it 
is "just" a note?

Thank you for your feedback.
