[HTML_Comment] ... [/HTML_Comment] surrounds a portion of a page with HTML comment markers, but processes the Lasso tags within.

This tag is necessary since Lasso will not process any tags that are contained within HTML comment tags. The [HTML_Comment] ... [/HTML_Comment] tags are processed into actual HTML comment tags by Lasso ensuring that the Web browser sees the same output, but Lasso is able to process all the contained tags.

These are usually used when creating JavaScript or Style Sheets that have enclosed Lasso tags, but also need to be wrapped in HTML comment tags.
