Commenting in HTML
This HTML comment tag incorporates a comment in the source code of the HTML document. The example below adds a comment HTML:
<!--This is an example text that won't be displayed in the browser--> <p>This will be shown in the browser.</p>
In some cases, you might need to make HTML comment out notes in multiple lines. Use the following code to learn how to comment out HTML multi-line comments (or block comments):
<div> <p>This text is visible. Check the source code for multi-line comment.</p> <!-- Hello, world! I am a comment and I am displayed in multiple lines! --> </div>
Note: there used to be an HTML <comment> tag, but it is not supported by any modern browser. Don't use it to hide your comments.
