Validation Results Are Overly-complicated

As an example of the subject line, a page I sought to validate returned a report of 20 errors however, after sorting 
through all the extraneous data, I discovered there were only two.

Just out of curiosity, I re-entered the two errors and ran the page through WDG's validator and received a report 
listing only the actual errors which greatly simplified a fix.  Next, one error was purposely inserted and the page run 
through W3C resulting in a report stating there were nine errors.

Apparently, you're following Microsoft's lead in making simple things complicated by listing several subsequent errors 
created as a result of one primary error which makes the actual problem more difficult to discern.

Why not keep it simple?
