heck just add the headline to the current mouse over :-)

I like the current mouse over pretty handy.

That's an idea...

But I still want to know about Gerry's idea--if you just show the number for comments, what can you show when there's no comments? Any ideas besides zeros?

Ummm ok then, how about a (.) which is far less distracting than (?) at the end of every line which makes you think the headline is in the form of a question.
I answer rhetorical questions for my own enjoyment.

don't like the dot--no meaning in it. I doubt a reader will confuse a question mark in parens with one pertaining to the headline. Smaller font reduces confusion too. Not satisfied, but not seeing anything better. Maybe a very small graphic, like a comic strip word balloon....?
