I don't know what you are asking. If you want to know what a javascript comment tag is:
//this is a comment.

But that is in a javascript script.

Script tag in html: <script></script>

That's the begging of a comment.

<!-- Comment goes here -->

Note: The comment tag is used to insert a comment in the HTML source code. A comment will be ignored by the browser. You can use comments to explain your code, which can help you when you edit the source code at a later date.

As for JavaScript if your comment is only one line long you would do this:

//Comment goes here

If your Comment were to go further than one line, you would use this method of commenting:

/* Comment goes here */

Also Javascript comments can only go between the "script" tags, however, nirchuck gave you an example of using the "script" tag. When using JavaScript, the proper way is like this:

<script type="text/javascript">

Use the type attribute otherwise not everything will work.

Hope it helps, Death
