    display: block;
    font-size: 12px;
    font-style: italic;
    line-height: 1.4;
<script type="text/javascript">
    // Recent Comments Settings
 numComments  = 5,
 showAvatar  = true,
 avatarSize  = 60,
 roundAvatar = true,
 characters  = 40,
 showMorelink = false,
 moreLinktext = "More »",
 defaultAvatar  = "",
 hideCredits = true;
<script type="text/javascript" src=" recent comments with avatars.js"></script>
