W3C Validator Team,

My team and I have just finished building our new web site using xhtml 1.0 
that we validated using your site. You've done a terrific job and made our 
lives a lot easier and hopefully will continue to make the lives of other web 
developers easier as browser support for standard compliant code increases.

To show our support and our compliance, we've included a validation link on 
the bottom of each page. The validation links when followed however offer no 
explanation of what the results represent, especially of a non-technical 
person were to follow the link. I think your site would be even more useful 
if there were a "user friendly" link that would first provide an introduction 
to the validation results. This would help alleviate the FAQ: "Help me! I 
clicked on an icon and ended up on this strange site! "

Thanks for all of your hard work.

Cheers,
Robert Brown
