Hi all, here is what I'm thinking about user comments:
A user comment (e.g., in blogs, wikis, forms) can be marked as an
hAtom  since it has a similar content pattern. A way to
differentiate an hEntry (e.g., a blog post) from another hEntry (e.g.,
a user comment) can be done reusing "in-replies-to"  from Atom
Threading Extensions . It provides a mechanism to indicate that an
entry is a response to another resource.
rel="in-repl-to" can indicate that the current hEntry is a reply to
another hEntry and has a reference point @href:
<a rel="in-reply-to" href="#comment_20080902144745">Parent</a>
hEntries that use rel="in-reply-to" can be considered as a comment
entry in response to a parent entry in the threaded conversation
(e.g., in blogs, wikis, forms).
hEntries that are chronologically listed can all use rel="in-repl-to"
and refer to the root hEntry (e.g., blog post, form post)
By reusing in-reply-to , we can solve the microformats representation
for user comments , , .
I've put the above into hatom-brainstorming in the Wiki .
What do you think?
