           Summary: Pass/fail banner should be first on the page
           Product: Validator

          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Website

The actual banner on the validation results ("This page is|is not valid [whatever]") is the most important 
item on the page and should be RIGHT AT THE TOP, not located under the "Revalidate" fieldset. I'll only 
want to revalidate if my page is invalid, in the first place, and in the second place DON'T MAKE ME 
THINK. Give me the results at the very top.

On the plus side, you've gotten rid of those awful blue and red banner colours, the latter of which 
looked even worse with the hyperlinks given to the (X)HTML specifications. Note that the pale-orange 
and pale-green colours may be hard to distinguish for some colourblind people, which might be less of 
an issue if the type were of higher contrast. Suggest darker type.
