HTML comments


HTML Comments

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">
                  -->
