I'm currently setting up comments for a Wordpress theme I'm created, I have just successfully created nested comments but I'm having issues removing the word 'reply' from the reply button in order to use an image via the css.

The code I'm using at the moment for the reply link is as follows:

<?php comment_reply_link(array_merge($args, array('depth' => $depth, 'max_depth' => $args['max_depth']))) ?>

I need the word 'reply' to completely disappear and just rely on my css button which is as follows:

ol.commentlist li div.reply { width:104px;height:35px;background-image:url(images/comment_reply.png); }
ol.commentlist li div.reply:hover { background-image:url(images/comment_reply_rl.png);}
ol.commentlist li div.reply a { float:left;width:104px;height:35px;background-image:url(images/comment_reply.png); }

All help will be massively appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
