Here's what it says:
"7.1 Introduction to the structure of an HTML document
An HTML 4 document is composed of three parts:
a line containing HTML version information,
a declarative header section (delimited by the HEAD element),
a body, which contains the document's actual content. The body may be
implemented by the BODY element or the FRAMESET element.
White space (spaces, newlines, tabs, and comments) may appear before
or after each section."
The last sentence says that comments can go anywhere. The only reason
I can see for JSLint to not allow comments anywhere is if that causes
a problem for a specific browser. If that's the case then I'd like to
know which browsers have the issue.
