It's great that MetaFilter shows how many comments for each posting are new for you on the main page. It would be even greater if, on the comments page itself, there was some kind of indication of which were new. A simple
tag at the boundary would do...

Very bizarre. That's HR tag. I used entities for the angle brackets, dunno why they got interpreted as real.

Wow -- that's a great idea. A nice little visual "bookmark" would really help when checking back on long threads.

it could also be tagged with an A NAME="new" anchor... then a bookmarklet in the toolbar could add "#new" to the end of the URL........ or better, just link to #new from the mefi home page if there are new comments.

Ooh. Yes, I like the #new anchor, why didn't I think of that?

Yeah, I could do this, let me take a look and get to it this weekend.
