Highlight Author / Owner Comments
Aditya has written a hack to change the formatting of comments that you leave on your own blog, so that they stand out. This requires wrapping your comments in a distinctive formatting tag (a div, for example...) and then pulling out any comments authored by your profile for fancy formatting. You can see it in action in the comments on The Last Word. Looks great!! Helps your own words stand out in the comments... especially useful if you like to carry on discussions and add original material there. I wonder if it's extensible for multiple authors? (One color for me, one for Greg, etc!)

yes john! to answer your question ... its very much extensible. just that instead of one if statement, you'll need to add one more searching for the other person's profile ID! :)

anyone not able to see anything on that link? IE shows no posting, and even though it says it's config'd for Firefox and Opera, Opera goes haywire and goes wonky and only displays bits and pieces of text (but still no main post)

shame, coz it sounds like a handy feature
