    Is this someform of javascript in HTML?

    I'm trying to decode a webpage, and somethings have come up
    that don't make sense.. but don't seem to affect the functionality
    of the page either.

    1. I have a <td..> line that starts <!--td.....> What is the
    "!--" ?

    2. I see a bunch of <br /> and a few others that have a "/"
    prior to the ending ">" of the prefix tag. as well as an <image
    tag, and <input tag. Are they just ignored?

    In looking at the code closer, I'm thinking they left the old form in
    in the form of comments <!-- .... --> either that or to make decoding
    the page more difficult.

    But I still don't get the extra "/" in the prefix.

    Example below:

    <br /><br />
    <input type='hidden' name='AppBoundary' value='END' />
    <img src="/publish/html/art/del.gif" />

    the extra forward slash is for proper XHTML validation. XHTML requires empty tags to be closed with a forward slash.

    <!-- .... -->

    is something that has been commented out
