«Validation Results for http://example.com - W3C Markup Validation Service»

- From my Bookmarks: «Validation Results for … Validation Service»

Given: «WMVS: Results for http://example.com»

- From my Bookmarks: «WMVS: Results for http://example.com»

Actually, to salvage as much as possible of the most significant bits of the
URL, we might even do:

    «WMVS Results: http://example.com»

Four characters less — the “for” and a space — in the preamble is four more
characters of the start of the URL; and without any “context” at the end of
the title, chances are good the filename (e.g. “…feedback.html”) will be
visible (or, if truncating at the end, as much as possible of the URL).
