Suggestion: A small icon between the progress bar and the online icon might make sense: a yellow exclamation point with a title text saying "page loaded with errors: the (x)html code on this page does not validate" or "page loaded with errors: there are errors in the javascript code on this page," etc.; and other icons for other kinds of page loading messages (a red exclamation point for HTTP error codes, with the HTTP error code number and explanation as a supplement to the error page that Mozilla provides in the document window; some other kind of icon for a page that loads properly with no errors, etc.).
