HTML Comments


Comment tags are used to insert comments in the HTML source code.


HTML Comment Tags

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:

                    

Example

<!-- This is a comment --!> <p> This is a Paragraph.</p> <!-- Remember to add more information here --!>

Comments are also great for debugging HTML, because you can comment out HTML lines of code, one at a time,to search for errors:

 

Example

<!-- Do not display this at the moment
<img border="0" src="pic_trulli.jpg" alt="Trulli">
-->
