I agree!!  It is very much "in the eye of the beholder."  I'm not a fan of
the NU and very much prefer the w3 validator.  I much prefer the way the
results are displayed in the w3 validator.  The NU validator displays them
in a manner that is too busy with all of the different formatting for the
various parts of an error message.  I also like that the w3 validator gives
you a summary of how many errors/ warnings were found at the top of the
displayed results.
