<!–…–> tag – Comment tag

<!--...--> HTML Comments tag

Earlier, the <comment> tag was used for comments.

But, the <comment> tag  is deprecated in HTML5.

So, you should code the comments like below – 

<!--I am a comment-->

Why comments are used and how to see it?

  • To explain code to other designers/developers.  They can refer it during editing/modified the code.
  • Sometimes, you do not want to delete the code but do not want to execute this, then you can comment that code.
  • Comments are invisible to end users but the other developers can see the source code to check for any comments.
  • The search browser inspector can be used to see the comments.
