PROBLEM: every time a new comment is logged, a "Reply" link is generated
which allows threading of comments -- such repeated link text, however, 
is not programmatically bound to the comment number to which it refers,
with the result that there are numerous links named "Reply" whose 
function is identical (create a reply to the comment) but which cannot
be differentiated from one another nor easily associated with a specific
comment

SUGGESTION: explicitly include the number of the comment in the Reply 
link (e.g. "Reply to Comment #16" so as to avoid having multiple links
with identical hyperlink text)

(although one could use WCAG 2.0 Technique C7 to use a CSS overlay to hide the
comment number portion of the Reply hyperlink from visual renderings, i think
there is utility for ALL users if each "Reply" link explicitly refers to the
comment to which one is using the link to reply)
