Unfortunately Trac doesn't allow an easy way to do this.

https://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/3352 was closed as wontfix

The only way to achieve this is to write a Trac plugin, as comment content can't be altered within a Trac template.

Can we write a Trac plugin?
Their legacy bad decisions shouldn't result in us leaving holes in our defences :)

We can, but we're not writing/deploying new plugins due to the lack of people to maintain them ongoing.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
