For those asking for an example of the script and the 

Using the following:
    print("Working so far <BR>");
    print("Still working next line is going to be a 
    // This line should be a comment
    print("This is the next line past the comment<BR>");

Still working next line is going to be a comment
<end of browser output>

Thanking everyone for the help.  Greatly appreciate it.

Also in reply to the other suggestions regarding one liners 
vs multiple line comments:

The lines I have commented are all on their own line and 
are one liners.  More or less, anywhere I use a "//" to 
comment, the entire line is displayed to the user.  The 
following two scripts will give me the same result.

    // This comment will show on the web page

    print('// This comment will show on the web page');

I noticed in the documentation that the "//" was considered 
a C++ style of commenting.  Do I possibly need a particular 
module or directive to say that "//" is a comment?

I received an email stating that it could not be reproduced 
on a  RH Linux 7 machine.  This problem is specific to Mac 
OS X client, so I'm sure that you were unable to reproduce 
it on your box.

Either way, this is definately happening and is not "bogus" 
as you said.

unable to reproduce on RH Linux 7.

This sounds very bogus.

Okay it would happen on more than one liners.

basically if you have a ?> on the same line as the // comment it will do this.

I know there is some other bugs on this same problem, but I don't have the numbers
