comment out a line of ASP VBScript code

Hello Experts,

I am developing a website that allows the owner to enter their Google Analytics tracking code, without needing to edit the design, IO'm using a database to store the value for the analytics JavaScript and a conditional statement to determine whether to parse the JavaScript -or not--

<% If Florist.Fields.Item("Analytics").Value <> "" then%><%=(Florist.Fields.Item("Analytics").Value)%><%End if%>

As per Googles instructions I'm include the Google JavaScript in this case the variable stored in <%=(Florist.Fields.Item("Analytics").Value)%> just before the closing </head> tag

As per below.

Problem is I'm a split Code View / Design View developer, and when I include this line just before the closing </head> tag, so just after the include CSS tags, It removes all styling from the design view.

To overcome this I have tried storing <% If Florist.Fields.Item("Analytics").Value <> "" then%><%=(Florist.Fields.Item("Analytics").Value)%><%End if%> in an external file and then referencing the file with an include -

<!--#include virtual="/Scripts/analytics.asp" -->

Which works fine, but still leaves me with the style being removed.

Is there something wrong with the way I have built my code below?
Can I comment out the code in - <!--#include virtual="/Scripts/analytics.asp" -->
 in other words the code"<% If Florist.Fields.Item("Analytics").Value <> "" then%><%=(Florist.Fields.Item("Analytics").Value)%><%End if%>" until such time as the design element is complete?

I know it works fine in a browser, just don't really want to keep having to preview in browser..

Any thoughts really appreciated

Have you tried just commenting out the line?  It should work, but not sure if it will return the stylings.
