Comment-based syntax typically uses XML-like comments or special preprocessed comment-like elements to either annotate parts of a Web page (see StructureAnnotation) or to introduce program code into the document (see PythonInWebPage).

See PythonInWebPage for an example using JSP-like syntax. Here is a StructureAnnotation version using HTML-like syntax:

  <!-- loop:item in items -->
      <td><!-- --></td>
  <!-- loop:end -->

One potential advantage of comment-based syntax is that HTML-aware tools can ignore the comments, should the syntax have been chosen correctly.
