That, and if you can save the page, because the DTML happens 
to be valid, the DTML inside the comment still gets parsed. 

Sure, <dtml-comment> is meant for "comments", but every 
programmer needs to disable blocks of code to eliminate 
factors while debugging. We all abuse comment characters for 
this purpose, and it works well enough to get the job done. 

But in Zope it goes like so: cut the suspect block, paste it 
into another window (text editor), save the DTML object, test, 
paste back into DTML, etc. This was the last thing a colleague 
saw before he refused to have any more to do with Zope.
