[theme-reviewers] Comment style problems

The li.comment children lists and list items are one of the primary reasons
to check all HTML tags within comments. All too often, the developer will
either not properly specify styles for li.comment, or else will overlook
resetting the LI styling.

For everything else, as with the Layout Test post, HTML tag styling should
be appropriate within the design intent. Some things are fairly discrete
(EM, BIG, STRONG, SUB, SUP, etc.), but others are much more subjective.

But yes: comments *do* need to display HTML tags correctly.
