Hello all,

@toby thank you for re-analysing the comment examples, you have done a 
good job

Here Is my proposal for a comment microformat.

On the whole to mark up comment's it is possible to use hAtom terms the 
only addition I would add is a rel-reply link. example and definition  
are as follows

example:  <a rel="reply" href="http://someblog/post#comment-001">link to 

*  reply[1] (comment-link) 60%
   o By adding "rel-reply" the author is indicating that the page 
http://someblog/post#comment-001 is a reply for the referring page (see 
     1. reply MAY be defined as rfc4685 section 3[2] in-reply-to atom 
threading extension.
     2. A parser MAY use the referring page http://someblog/post as the 
value of in-reply-to
