Hello Felix,

Thank you for the patch. With my apologies for taking a bit of time to  
review it, I have looked into it today.

I have followed parts of your patch very closely (e.g font size),  
others I respectfully disagree with (making the text color stronger  
than the rest of the text on the results page, for instance) and  
therefore settled for a compromise patch that I hope you will find  
acceptable.

The style patch can be tested at:
http://qa-dev.w3.org:8001/css-validator/

It would be great if this change to the results page could be tested  
on a variety of browsers. Indeed, reports on any style bug currently  
showing would be much welcome.

Thank you
