What is it?
Comments are regions of text and/or HTML tags that are ignored by the browser. Any text between the opening and closing comment delimeters will not appear on the screen. There are currently two methods to do this; the COMMENT element (obsolete) and the !-- -- delimiters (recommended.) The second method is a special HTML and XML syntax originating from SGML and uses '<!--' as a beginning delimiter and '-->' as an end delimiter. White space is allowed between the closing '--' and '>' but not between the opening '<!' and '--'. Comments are non-nestable.

These elements/syntaxes do not allow any attributes.
