Comments are nested within entries and "hfeed" elements can be nested
too. Typically, one doesn't see multiple entries with comments on the
In usage that I've seen, one would probably use this nesting structure:
* hfeed (for the blog, optional)
** hentry (for the one entry on the page)
*** hfeed (for the comment, required)
**** hentry (comment #1)
**** hentry (comment #2)
As Stephen notes, there should be a class element indicated that the
comment-hfeed is associated with the first hentry (the blog entry),
but we deliberately chose to keep that out of scoping for hAtom 0.1,
because, ahh, the quote it was "just making shit up".
Another option would be that hfeeds in hentrys would be assumed to be
comments and the "entry-title" is inheritable.
