Following is the example of sanitize method.

>> helper.sanitize("<!-- Script Start --><p>krunal test2</p>")
=> "&lt;!-- Script Start --><p>krunal test2</p>"

We can see in the above code that "html comment" tag get changed in output.


cc @krunal @pftg @rafaelfranca I've tested this against #11218 and sanitize correctly ignores HTML comments. Can we close this issue?


Hi @tomkadwill!

I think we should wait until #11218 gets merged.
