text editor and WebMatrix do not identify (color code) items in placement.info when they are commented out ... 

Is there a reason why some custom themes ( I'm using Mango ) put comments around the <Placement> and <Match> tags in their placement.info file packages  ??

Nothing in any of the documentation or Pluralsight lessons gave me a heads up to watch out for this ...  Lost a lot of time trying to debug this "feature" ...

The placement file is added to these themes as a courtesy to you, the user, to provide examples of what you can do with such a file. If the text editor you use does not color comments differently, I would complain about *that* "feature" to its developers.
