Hard coded HTML marking in comment_form()

it seems so ugly hard coding has slipped in the comment form.

On line 1554 of comment-template.php, there is some hard-coded html :

<h3 id="reply-title">
<?php comment_form_title( $args['title_reply'], $args['title_reply_to'] ); ?>
<small><?php cancel_comment_reply_link( $args['cancel_reply_link'] ); ?></small>

Semantically speaking, a H3 is far from being optimal.
Also, filters exists for all other elements of the comment form.
The h3 and small should not be hardcoded.

A new value could be included in the defaults :

'comment_reply_markup' => 
    '<h3 id="reply-title">%1$s <small>%2$s</small></h3>',

and line 1554 replaced by :

<?php printf( $args['comment_reply_markup'], 
comment_form_title( $args['title_reply'], 
$args['title_reply_to'] ), cancel_comment_reply_link( $args['cancel_reply_link'] ); ?>

Thanks a lot, hope you'll take it :)

If this is going to be addressed, then including a class="reply-title" attribute would mean that themes can use one less ID selector in their style.css.

Can we also keep the comment-reply-title class added in 24525 to the h3 element? I don't see any reason for removing the id attribute and changing the class attribute. Before we remove the id attribute from the h3 we should check and see how many themes are targeting it for styling.

I would also suggest changing comment_reply_markup to be something more appropriate, perhaps comment_reply_title?

I am +1 on the overall intent.

This seems to have been fixed in [34308] in a slightly different way but this ticket is no longer needed I believe.

#10 @rachelbaker

The small tag is still hard-coded after the changes in #33775. I recommend keeping this ticket open to remove all the hard-coded markup.
