You actually have the syntax correct, you're just comparing apples to
oranges.  AUTHENTICATED_USER is an object, that when called just happens
to return a string.  Your if statement above is comparing the string
attribute title to the object AUTHENTICATED_USER, which is why it's
always returning false.  The correct comparison above would be:

<dtml-if "(_['sequence-item'].title ==

The getUserName function of the AUTHENTICATED_USER object returns a
string containing the username.
