HTML 5 Comments Tag


The HTML 'comments' tag is used for creating comments within your HTML code.

Comments aren't displayed in the browser - they are simply there for the programmer's benefit. Comments can assist you, the HTML programmer, because you can write notes to yourself that explain what the code does. This is especially useful when you have a lot of code.

Technically, the 'comments' tag is not actually a 'tag'. It is simply a means to provide developers with a way to comment their code without it being rendered on the page. Therefore, there are no attributes available for the comments tag.
