Excellent CSS layout for that - it links so nicely to the HTML visually. Its a hard one to explain, its something that when you get it, it just clicks - but when you are struggling with is evil.. Kind of like learning positioning...

Nice tutorial David, I'm curious.. Are you going to do a follow up article on actually building this into Wordpress using the Wordpress functions and loops in comments.php ?

That would be rad! But ya, lekker start, the css is always a b1tch for this :)

@Chris - Marc will hopefully be extending on this tutorial next week. We are just flat out insane busy at the moment with Wordpress conversions. Prep for a tut like this takes about an 1hr or so, so he will make some time next week :)

Nice, clearly explained tutorial. Wish I found this when I was battling setting up our blogs comments! Look forward to Part II as well, when you manage it. Keep up the great work!

A follow up to this Tutorial will be up soon. Marc uses the "Wordpress Threaded Comments" HTML to show you the steps which he takes when converting an HTML file into a dynamic wordpress compatible .php page.
