Please follow the new look and feel proposal from Pau Giner, as illustrated in this mockup:
Please do not implement the gray background above the toolbar, however. This will be updated on the next mockup.
Also note that we want to reduce the max. number of characters shown by default down to 300, from 500 now, because this can make short comments have too much empty space. Since most of the comments we analyzed in the Obama page fit in 300 chars we thought is was a good number.
