Do you mean like the little valid/invalid box on Page Valet reports?

Actually therein lies a good point.  Whilst I wouldn't necessarily
regard a minor extra convenience for PDA users as a high priority
here, it would improve overall accessibility to put a simple
yes/no somewhere near the top of the linearisation of a results page.

As a user, if you're looking for flexibility in the presentation of
your results, why not use an XML (or EARL) option rather than an
HTML page for your reports?
