I find the "Jump To:" list of links a bit confusing.

First of all, if the "Show Source" checkbox is checked in the validation
options, Jump To: will include a link "Source Listing".  However, when
validation fails (i.e., the document checked was not valid), source
listing is included in the results but Jump To: has no link to it. 
Personally I would recommend not printing the source listing even for
invalid results, if the user has not requested it.  Alternatively, show a
link to source listing if source listing exists.

Another thing is that while "Results" and "Source Listing" are links
within the results page, ",text" and ",tablin" require another page to be
loaded.  Thus, similar links (under the same heading) behave differently. 
I would like to propose reorganizing links as follows:

Jump To:
  * Results
  * Source Listing

Results Format
  * Text Only
  * No Tables

Even better, move the "Results Format" selection to the "Revalidate With
Options" fieldset, presented e.g. with radio buttons.
