Filter Glyph for Comment Required Fields
|Reported by:||cais||Owned by:|
Currently the comment-template.php file uses an asterisk (*) as the default glyph for required fields used in the comment_form() function. This glyph is not easily manipulated without having to essentially over-write the entire comment_form() function.
I suggest the glyph be filtered. Therefore if one wants to change it, for example, to a hash (#) symbol then they can simply filter the output; or, if for any other reason one might want to enhance the glyph visibility or utility the filter would then allow for this while minimizing the impact on the default comment form.
