HTML comment Tag: Main Tips

  • The <!-- --> is an HTML comment tag.
  • To comment out in HTML, insert information between <!-- and --> tags (browsers won't show these notes).
  • Commenting in HTML allows developers to leave notes about their code, its functionality or to indicate necessary changes for the future.

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:

Example
<!--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):

Example
<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.
