The reports from the Site Valet subscription service used to have
exactly that for each page in site overview reports.  However, there
are issues with such a simple approach (see the archives of this list).
The number of failures depends not only on the page but also the
validator (how it handles errors, or whether it declines to validate at
all as the W3C validator does when certain data are missing),
and is not always a meaningful measure of anything.
