Hi Sue,

I just now pushed a change to the Web UI for the checker which removes the
background colors and increases the font size for the error messages, along with
adding some other related tweaks intended to make the results more readable.

So if you check some documents again with https://validator.w3.org/nu/ I
hope you’ll find that the readability has improved.
