    How To Create HTML Comments

    Introduction

    This article will show you how to add comments to HTML.

    Prerequisites

    Adding Comments in HTML

    This is how you create a comment in HTML:

    <!-- I'm a comment! -->
    

    In this second example, we’re using an HTML comment to comment out some markup:

    <!-- Look, a shark!
      <p>Sammy</p>
    -->
    

    Conclusion

    Creating comments is an important element to writing HTML.
