HTML Comment that Displays the names of Inventor's of HTML

P: n/a
Hi,

There is a html comment, which if we write and save that page with
only that comment, & try to open it in browser , it displays the name
of the invertors of HTML. The important part is, we need to write the
comment exactly the way it is. I don't remember the commet, and
couldn't find it online, but I would really like to know it. Please
let me know, if anyone knows about it!.

Thanks,
Amit

How do you invert HTML? And why would you want to?

What are you talking about? HTML comments are not displayed in the
browser. Even if they contain something as interesting as the inventor
of HTML (that should be Tim Berners-Lee). Try to provide a URL and
describe your problem again.

This sounds like a easter egg of a particular browser.

So what browser is it ?
It'll help to find the comment you're looking for.

Maybe he meant inventors? Is he referring to an Easter egg in some
browser? Something like entering "about:mozilla" in Netscape? (In
Netscape 4, anyway.)

in Mozilla Firebird, "about:mozilla" gets you:

"And so at last the beast fell and the unbelievers rejoiced. But all was not lost, for from the ash rose a great bird. The bird gazed down upon the unbelievers and cast fire and thunder upon them. For the beast had been reborn with its strength renewed, and the followers of Mammon cowered in horror.

from The Book of Mozilla, 7:15"
