What web server are you using?  '<!--' starts a comment (though '<!'
might be all you need) and '-->' ends a comment (though '>' might be
enough).  Thus everything in between those have no effect at all.  I
do recall seeing that on previous versions of Zope that sort of syntax
was used in their DTML files.
