Comment tags are used to insert comments in the HTML source code.
You can add comments to your HTML source by using the following syntax:
<!-- Write your comments here -->
Notice that there is an exclamation point (!) in the opening tag, but not in the closing tag.
Note: Comments are not displayed by the browser, but they can help document your HTML source code.
With comments you can place notifications and reminders in your HTML:
<!-- This is a comment --> <p>This is a paragraph.</p> <!-- Remember to add more information here --> <p>Comments are also great for debugging HTML, because you can comment out HTML lines of code, one at a time, to search for errors:</p>
<!-- Do not display this at the moment <img border="0" src="pic_trulli.jpg" alt="Trulli"> -->
