           Summary: Should "tentatively valid" have the same style (color)
                    as valid?
           Product: Validator
           Version: 0.7.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: check
        AssignedTo: link@pobox.com
        ReportedBy: ot@w3.org
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

Currently the results for a successfol and for a *tentatively* successful (i.e the document validate with 
override or fallback) "look" the same, e.g apart from the wording they use the same style and color. 

We could instead use a different color (I suggest a middle grey) for the "this page is tentatively valid 
foo" banner.

PRO: makes it clearer that the document will *not* be valid until the changes are made.
CON: might be confusing if the document is actually valid X, and the user performs a tentative 
validation for Y. 

The CON case above is fairly weak and unlikely, but there may be others I have not thought of.
