Blogger Trick : Applying Zebra Striping in Comments after each post.

An another idea to improve readability and visual appearance of comments section could be to apply Zebra Striping. In simple words Applying alternate colors.

To add Zebra Striping add the below Javascript : Include jQuery library. Add below line just before </head> section.
<script src='http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js' type='text/javascript'></script>

Add below code to just before </body> section.

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
$("#comments-block dt").each(function(i){
      var divId='zpk' + i.toString();
      $(this).before("<div id='" + divId + "'></div>");
      $(this).next().next().prependTo("#" + divId);
      $(this).next().prependTo("#"  + divId);
      $(this).prependTo("#"  + divId);
      $("#" + divId).css("padding","10px");
       if(i%2==0){
        $("#" + divId).css("background-color","#cdd1f3");
       }else{
       $("#" + divId).css("background-color","#ffffff");
       }
 });
});
</script>

Please correct the error below, and submit your template again.
Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: Element type "scriptsrc" must be followed by either attribute specifications, ">" or "/>".
how I correct it? Thanks for sharing brother! :)
