Note: this site no longer uses the native WordPress commenting functionality, so the feature described below can’t be seen here.

Styling post author or registered user comments on your WordPress 2.7 blog is much easier than it was back in ol’ 2.6. The new wp_list_comments() template tag (or comment_class() if you’re doing it the hard way) automatically includes class names like byuser and bypostauthor for easy CSS styling. Slick.

See the official 2.7 theme migration guide for more details.
