HTML Comments

HTML Comment tags are used to insert some useful comments in the HTML document.

Anything you write inside Comment tags will be ignored by web browser and it will not show any output to the user. Comments are very helpful for programmers. Using HTML Comments, you can add some useful description of some code. They help you understand your code and increases code readability later.

Example of Comment tag: <!-- This is a sample comment -->

<!-- Add any comment about following paragraph -->
<p>This is a first paragraph.</p>
<!-- This comment will tell something about following paragraph -->
<p>This is a another paragraph for testing.</p>
Note: Note: There is an exclamation sign (!) in the opening tag, but not in the closing tag.
