I asked a question on Stack Overflow, How to align a td text to the left of the table. For that question I got answered by Gintas K's comments, but I can't accept that comment as the accepted answer. So I wrote that comment as an answer and accepted it. How do I accept a comment like that as the accepted answer?

    You cannot. What you've done is correct: post your own answer with the complete solution, and then accept it. Aug 24, 2013 at 11:47

    This has been asked/requested/discussed literally hundreds of times here on Meta; the search feature should turn up lots of related questions. Or the "Linked" sidebar, starting with this question: A method for the OP to accept comments? Aug 24, 2013 at 11:49

    You could have left a comment as well to invite the commenter to leave an answer.

You can't accept a comment however you can give it a +1. If you want to accept @Gintas answer ask him to write it as an answer so you can accept it.
