           Summary: RFE: no green (or red) for tentatively passed: proposing
                    orangy yellow
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Website
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: svg@steltenpower.com
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org


People bug fix their pages until the validator gives green.
Tentatively passed also gives green, while there's still room for improvement.
People often stop reading when they see green.
Often they don't even look at the page at all, but only at the favicon in the
browsertab being red or green.
I propose a color between yellow and orange (as traffic lights have different
colors around the world).
