About this, Michel Fortin referred to an old thread (2005) about

For one thing, if I have to write a one-line comment:
<!-- Please, Mark, have a look at the following list -->
I need no less than 7 characters. Practically every language except
xml allows a
<delimiter> <comment> <newline>
For hiding a lot of text, I concede that the <!-- --> syntax is
sufficient, but is really overkill for short comments
