Display extra info in validation summary (.NET 1.1)

I use a validation summary to display all the errors detected by various validation controls on a page.  I would like to also use this validation summary to display some additional errors that are detected server side.  Specifically on certain database calls I check for existing data in the database and would like to write lines into the validation summary if values are found / not found.

Is this possible?

No. You need to write your own control rto display the information.

Any suggestion on the best sort of control to do this with?  In the past I've used a literal to copy the formatting that the validation summary used, and hidden it / changed it as appropriate.  But this always seemed like a bit of a hack.
