Since this seems like an HTML FAQ question, I'm sure Thomas Boutell has
probably covered it. Check http://www.boutell.com/ for a copy. I've also
written up a short one-pager called "Make Your Comments Legal" at

     http://www.stonehand.com/doc/comments.html

If that doesn't help or is confusing, let me know and I'll update it.
