It is so annoying when it says "You don't have a background-color for the

Having a transparant background use to be acceptable.
If you're going to change something, at least tell people.

But you never do, you hide information inside link after link.  You could be 
on the W3 website for hours before you find ANYTHING.  And I have yet to 
find anything that says "We change the validator to screw with everyone".  
Even your own website is hurt by this, just look at how many warnings YOU 

FIX THE VALIDATOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
