Hi Shaun,

You can customize search crawler and remove all HTML between comment tags. Read documentation here Customizing how crawlers process page content

Or if you use ascx controls (or transformations), you can wrap your comments in <%-- comment --%> and it will be removed from output html. For K# you can use another syntax: K# comments
