If you want a comment to be visible for translators, place it inside the element, for example:
<p> <!--TRANSLATORS: Note that foo is bar in this context.--> The fooish bar mumbles bazzling. </p>
This will result in:
# type: Content of: <p> #. TRANSLATORS: Note that foo is bar in this context. msgid "The fooish bar mumbles bazzling." msgstr ""
As per the established convention, start the comment with
TRANSLATORS: to catch their attention, and do not add a space
after the beginning of the HTML comment (
<!--), since this will
unnecessarily indent the comment in the POT.
