This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

See meta.stackoverflow.com/editing-help#comment-formatting. The only HTML that comments can support are code samples,italic and bold text, and links. – s0d4pop Jul 16 '12 at 0:02

You can format inline code with surrounding backticks.

For example, `<html>` renders as <html>
