Saying only "33 valid links." makes me ask "well, how many invalid
then?".  The number can probably be added easily (haven't checked) but I
think the message needs some work.  Maybe something like (always one of,
and similarly for anchors):

  No links found.
  X links found, all valid.
  X links found, out of which Y were valid.  See below for more info.
