This is a critical flaw in the HTML editor. Not only is it an important tool for developers to troubleshoot code, it also allows me, as someone assisting others who are not familiar with any level of coding, to leave instructions embedded in the page/ assignment/ etc., so that if they want to tweak things in some way, there are guides there for them. It's just plain common courtesy to anyone else that might come along and use that page. (Heck, well commented code should be REQUIRED of anything posted to the commons!)

 

Also... Can anyone tell me how the heck to post a NEW item on these forums??

BTW, the worst part about how this functions, having not known that the VERY COMMON AND STANDARD <!-- --> tags weren't supported, is that the comment tags and everything in between simply get stripped out... (Totally rude...)
