CSS Comments

  • Last Updated : 13 Oct, 2021

/* content */

Comment can be single-line or multi-line. The /* */ comment syntax can be used for both single and multiline comments. We may use <!– –> syntax for hiding in CSS for older browsers, but this is no longer recommended for use. Adding comments in the code is a good practice that can help to understand the code if someone reads the code or if it is reviewed later.

Note: The outputs are the same because comments are ignored by the browser and are not interpreted.



Example 1: This example describes the single-line comment. 

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <style>
    h1 {
        color: green;
    }
     
    /* Single line comment */
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
     
<p> A Computer Science portal for geeks </p>
 
</body>
</html>

Output:

Example 2: This example describes the multi-line comment. 

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <style>
    h1 {
        color: green;
    }
       
    /* This is a multiline
           comment */
    </style>
</head>
 
<body>
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
     
<p> A Computer Science portal for geeks </p>
 
</body>
</html>
