It is a common practice that most of the blogs allow their users to comment the published posts. The ability to comment is usually represented by a simple form with a textfield for the comment’s content. That textfield allows users to write a comment and add some basic styling to it (e.g. bold, underline) and comment on particular quotes from the text. The ability to include images in the comments is gaining popularity.

  • It is almost impossible to predict every possible type of an article comment, therefore there is no strict set of elements that will be included in the content.
