I view my answers in time-ordering (oldest first) - I think it makes it easier to see when one answer builds upon another (as I've seen happen often). However, there's no visual indicator that says that a given answer is the highest ranked answer in the question (or, the "community chosen best answer"). So perhaps a light bulb, exclamation point, or something like that should appear next to the highest voted answer in a question if the highest voted answer is not the accepted answer. If the highest voted answer is accepted, then it would just have the check mark.
This idea is really only applicable to the oldest and newest views, so I guess it depends on how many people actually use those views, but it would make it easier to quickly identify the highest voted answer when viewing in either time ordering.
