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:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<body>

 

<!– This is a comment –>

<p>This is a paragraph.</p>

<!– Comments are not displayed in the browser –>

 

</body>

</html>

This is a paragraph.

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

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<body>

 

<!– Do not display this at the moment

<img border=”0″ src=”pic_trulli.jpg” alt=”Trulli”>

–>

 

</body>

</html>
