HTML comments are not displayed in the browser, but they can help document your HTML source code.

HTML Comments

Comments are some text or code written in your code to give an explanation about the code, and not visible to the user. Comments which are used for HTML file are known as HTML comments. Anything written between these tags will be ignored by the browser, so comments will not be visible on the webpage.

Comments of any code make code easy to understand and increase readability of 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 start tag, but not in the end tag.


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 code:


<!-- 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:


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