Chrome snippet to get HTML comments with jQuery
jQuery.fn.comments = function( blnDeep ){
var blnDeep = (blnDeep || false);
var jComments = $( [] );
// Loop over each node to search its children for
// comment nodes and element nodes (if deep search).
this.each(
function( intI, objNode ){
var objChildNode = objNode.firstChild;
var strParentID = $( this ).attr( "id" );
// Keep looping over the top-level children
// while we have a node to examine.
while (objChildNode){
// Check to see if this node is a comment.
if (objChildNode.nodeType === 8){
// We found a comment node. Add it to
// the nodes collection wrapped in a
// DIV (as we may have HTML).
jComments = jComments.add(
"<div rel='" + strParentID + "'>" +
objChildNode.nodeValue +
"</div>"
);
} else if (
blnDeep &&
(objChildNode.nodeType === 1)
) {
// Traverse this node deeply.
jComments = jComments.add(
$( objChildNode ).comments( true )
);
}
// Move to the next sibling.
objChildNode = objChildNode.nextSibling;
}
}
);
// Return the jQuery comments collection.
return( jComments );
