Great article! I used this css to style the author’s comments on my site and it worked great. Now I’m looking to change my theme, and in playing around with it, I’ve found that while the author’s comments have the border, when the comments are replies to someone else’s comment, it doesn’t show the border. Is there something special I have to do to include replies?

And even better yet, it super easy to do. Below is a very simple guide showing you the CSS class you can use to target your author comments differently.

You guys at Google Rock! I am sorry this is way off topic but I think you have a real winner with some of the stuff I am seeing in Google experimental. For example that alternate listing stuff is out of this world (Literally, love the crossref map option and Timeline view options)! Please, post a thread on these new Google Experimental features. You guys are so innovative always thinking outside the box. The user friendly simplicity of its design will make these new features an instant hit with the avg. Joe surfer and techies alike! Mucho Kudos! Google has done for search engines what Mr.Gates did for the Xerox GUI’s.
