HTML Comments - Begin and End

Why would you include a table in the following:

<!--BEGIN:directory/filename.html-->

...table goes here

<!--END:directory/filename.html-->

What exactly does the begin and end do.

They are just comments  and will not have any affect on the output.
It is always good to have comments so it will be easy to follow the code when you look at it after some time.

I'm looking at the weirdest thing ---

THere is a cell with a nested table aligned right and top.  The nested table is 1/2 the width of the cell, and half the length.  So basically the cell form an L shape around the nested table.  At the bottom of the page there is text - in comment "delimiters".  Now that text displays in the L portion of the cell, wrapped around the nested table.  If you delete the table, the text rejustifies.

No positioning is used.  I am just trying to figure out the magic "behind" this since NN (older versions than 6)  doesn't allow for tables to be placed using css - well, not without bugs.

I am mystified how the text gets into a cell 800 lines up.
