Restyled comments

I’ve restyled the comments on the entry pages again. I’ve gone back to using Adam Kalsey’s SimpleComments as I think the trackbacks look better mixed in with the comments than they do separately. Trackbacks now have a grey background so they stand out better. I’d stayed away from SimpleComments until now because I wasn’t sure if it was compatible with MT3 – turns out it mostly worked but would display unapproved comments awaiting moderation. A new version, 1.2, has fixed that.
Trackback pings are now also showing up in the Comment RSS feeds, again thanks to SimpleComments. This will probably lead to some kind of character encoding nightmare as soon as someone using a non-UTF-8 or Latin-1 character set pings me, but, eh.
