CSS Comments

CSS comments are a way to add explanatory notes or disable certain sections of code in Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). They are not displayed in the browser and are solely intended for developers to provide information about the code.

In CSS, there are two types of comments:

  • Single-line comments: These comments begin with two forward slashes (//) and extend until the end of the line. Here’s an example:
/* This is a single-line comment */
body {
  background-color: #f1f1f1; /* Set the background color */
}
  • Multi-line comments: These comments start with a forward slash followed by an asterisk (/) and end with an asterisk followed by a forward slash (/). Multi-line comments can span across multiple lines and are useful for longer explanations or temporarily disabling blocks of code. Here’s an example:
/*
This is a multi-line comment.
It can span across multiple lines.
body {
  color: red;
}
*/

By using comments effectively in your CSS, you can make your code more readable, maintainable, and easily understandable by other developers who may be working on the project.
