Comments In XML

XML comments have the exact same syntax as HTML comments. A comment is used to temporarily edit out a portion of XML code or to leave a note . Although XML is a supposed to be self-describing data, you may still come across some instances where an XML comment might be necessary. Below is an example of a notation comment that should be used when you need to leave a note to yourself or to someone who may be viewing your XML.
 
Example:
 
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”ISO-8859-15″?>
<!–Associate commission details are updated bi-weekly –>
<associate_details>
  <associate>
   <name>XYZ Kumar</name>
   <commission>50K</commision>
</ associate >
<associate>
     <name>Dharmendra Das</name>
     <commission>52K</commision>
</ associate >
<associate>
     <name>ABC </name>
     <commission>92K</commision>
</ associate >
</associate_details>
<!– End of associate commission details–>
