function doSomething() {

    var i = 0;    // counter to be used later;


Comments in JavaScript can be between /* */ markings (useful for multiple line comments) or after // markings (for single lines only).

    I want to temporarily disable one of two email addresses in a javascript field, e.g.:

    <option value=",">Email Address</option>

    Any way to comment out one or the other?

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

We have a pretty good* newsletter.
