Missing Comment Text

well, i had some trouble with missing field text on comments. it was an IE6 parsing error. however, a fantatic chap from uglypeoplesuck.com gave me some instructions on how to solve the problem. (the site is not available at the moment so i can’t vet advise you on the content). Many thanks Rob !

the key was adding some extra text to my Individual Entry Archive template as follows:
