[orcmid] 

1. With the file you sent me, I see the colors of the comments exactly the same as you have
indicated in the cover email.

 2. When I added two comments on my own, on in front of the others, one between the original
6th and 7th, I got yellow highlighting, a new color, for my comment in both cases and the
colors already assigned were not disturbed.

 3. There is no indication of this at all in the ODF for the documents.  There is no special
style or application of styles in the comments or for the comment boxes.  The settings file
has nothing about annotations or different users who worked on the document.

Your observation that this is all handled in the display code and it is related to the user
ID (the only thing that changes beside the timestamps) seems to be confirmed.

I have no idea how to find that.  I trust others may recall where annotations are handled.
