This is a very simple plugin that allows HTML style comments to be used in the wikitext. They will show up unchanged in the XHTML output. They will not be rendered by the browser, but can be viewed with “View source code” command. The syntax is exactly like in HTML:
<!-- This is a HTML comment -->
This can be useful, if you're post-processing the HTML output in some way, e.g. to produce PDF documents. Some converters can use special HTML comments to steer the conversion process.

New in version 1.1:
- Defined constant
HTMLCOMMENT_SAFEto allow to switch back to old behaviour.
- Removed version number from plugin archive, since the extension manager can't handle versioned archives.
I had tested the following with the original version:
No dialog, no output. So the browser (Firefx) doesn't handle script tags inside HTML comments. Am I missing something here? Do other browser behave different? — ChristopherArndt 2005-10-01 03:24
Hi! One short question: Commented text is displayed in search results. Is there a method to prevent this? — orinoco 2011-03-09 9:20
It should be no problem to embed the unescaped code into the html comment, so I removed the escape feature. The code is slight changed and is replaced into a git repo. Already informed the original author. — danny0838 2013/03/19 08:54
