I'm not sure I understand what it is you are intending to do. You cannot
modify the pages at w3.org, obviously, so are you intending to use a local
copy or to "frame" the page or what? The answer depends entirely on what
you're planning to do, but a good rule of thumb is to make sure you don't
misrepresent any modifications as the work of the W3C. Make your "Valid"
page look however you like and then just refer to the W3C for details.

If you gave any specific suggestions for how the look of the W3C HTMl
Validation Service could be improved, please feel free to speak up! :-)
