           Summary: Need a more appropriate success message for (X)HTML5
                    validation
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: dean@dean.org.nz
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org


Due to the HTML5 specification being a work in progress and therefore (X)HTML5
conformance criteria changing daily; I think we need to make people aware that
the (X)HTML5 validation service is experimental.  

What was valid (X)HTML5 today may not be valid (X)HTML5 next week so I think we
need a more appropriate success message.

At the moment we have the following message near the top of the page:

"This document was successfully checked as HTML5!"

Maybe this could be changed to:

"This document was successfully checked as HTML5!
The HTML5 specification is a work in progress. Validation results for your
document may well vary as the specification progresses."

Or something like that :)

note: of course, change the HTML5 to XHTML5 for XHTML5 documents.
