This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.

The Comment() constructor returns a newly created Comment object with the optional DOMString given in parameter as its textual content.


comment1 = new Comment(); // Create an empty comment
comment2 = new Comment("This is a comment");


var comment = new Comment("Test");
