Answer: Use the Syntax "/* text */"

Comments in CSS are typically used to explain the purpose of the style rules declarations. It will help you and others to understand what you were trying to do with the style rules at the time of editing style sheets. Comments are not displayed by the browsers.

  • /* This is a single line CSS comment */
  • /* This is an example of a
  •    CSS multi-line comment */
  • body {
  •     font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
  • }
  • p {
  •     color: #333;
