I have tried it before. It doesn't stop it at all. HTML block comments are only for HTML. In fact, a lot of people already surround blocks of ASP code (especially functions and subs) with HTML comments to prevent older browsers that don't support ASP from trying to use the code. I know exactly what I'm talking about. Ask any of the gurus here, and they'll tell you the same. I don't make up answers. I only post when I know.
