But the problem I see with Mike's <xml:comment/> proposal is that it implies that the body of the comment is well-formed. I think this is too onerous if you're trying to hack stuff out to see where it's broken, and likely to push someone over the edge. That's what I tried to convey in my example; where the start tag and end tag don't match: <!-- Ignore this until I fix it -- <MyElement> <!-- The price is changed by the controller --> <price>100.00</price> </BrokenMyElement> <!-- Is this the problem? --> --> Pete Cordell Codalogic Ltd Interface XML to C++ the easy way using C++ XML data binding to convert XSD schemas to C++ classes.
