I got a rather unsatisfactory answer on Stack Overflow but the subsequent discussion with the answerer (in the comments below) was helpful. Should I accept his answer? Or is there a way to accept a specific comment?

The usual way is to ask the answerer to edit their comment into the answer, and then to accept that.

Unless stackoverflow, in its infinite wisdom, automatically converts your answer back into a comment – c-urchin Nov 10 '11 at 16:06
