    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!

You may write comments in Markdown. This makes code easy to post, as you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences (```) with double new lines before and after.

Code of Conduct

Absolutely anyone is welcome to submit a comment here. But not all comments will be posted. Think of it like writing a letter to the editor. All submitted comments will be read, but not all published. Published comments will be on-topic, helpful, and further the discussion or debate.
