If you submit a comment with more than one paragraph, what appears on the screen has no spacing between the paragraphs, even if you enter blank lines between the paragraphs. This means that comments appear as just a wall of text, even if that isn't how they were typed and submitted.

The first post in a Question formats correctly (such as this one), it's only the subsequent comments that munge paragraphs together into a wall of text.

Also, there is no preview on comments (as there is for Questions), which would be nice.

Finally, some spacing between the Question text and the poster details panel in the top right would help with readability. Or maybe just move the poster details somewhere else so they don't interrupt the flow of the Question, the text of which has to re-flow underneath the poster details and makes it all rather messy.

Probably just requires the CSS for the p element to be tweaked a little?

You should be able to add some spacing in comments by using the HTML br tag:

But indeed without a preview the result is not so intuitive.

For the spacing in comments, see my comment above (I ended first comment line with <br><br>, first one to start new line, second to leave one line empty)
