How to highlight the authors comments in Serendipity? This obviously is a common question for beginners as all the competitors have some sort of solution for this design request. In Serendipity there is no need for third party plugins as it adds a class for each comment structured as follows: serendipity_comment_author_Commenter-Name. So all you need to do is to give a style in your cascading style sheet (CSS) for the unique classes you want to stand out.
