    Is it possible to hide xml comments with a CSS?

    I know you can toggle them in the options but can it also be done with a CSS?

    I am trying to create 2 different CSS for our writers. One for editing that shows comments, prolog, draft-comments conref with gray background, etc.…  The other one I am trying to style as close as possible to what the actual output will look like. Is there any way to hide the comments in the second CSS?

    There is a proprietary (XMetaL-specific) CSS selector for this named $COMMENT, so you can have this in your CSS:

    $COMMENT {
      display: none;
    }


    FYI:
    XMetaL's proprietary selectors are $DOCUMENT, $PROCINS, $COMMENT, $MARKSEC

    $PROCINS also supports target and data so you can differentiate between different PIs:

    Nope, that does not work. That’s the first thing I tried. The color attribute seems to have an effect and I can make the comments white but the region still shows up.

    Update: never mind, looks like the comments do not show up in normal regardless.
    I guess I don’t need to remove them from tag view since that’s not really like the output.

    If necessary (sounds like it isn't) there is another way to stop comments from appearing in Tags On view and that is to set this INI variable to false: show_comments
