Sharepoint Designer 2010 - Any shortcuts to comment or uncomment out html code?

Whenever I have html code that spans pages that I want to comment out its a PITA with SPD.  

I guess I am used to VS 2010 - but in Visual Stusio, any code that is highlighted/selected can be commented out via CtrlK+C and uncommented with Ctrl+KU.

How do I quiclly comment out code I have selected in SPD?  I tried the quick edit tag - wrap tag, but it doesn't accept "<!-- -->".  It only allows Div etc...


Otherwise, I have to select the whole tag and contents which jumps to the end tag.  Put --> at the end and then  Hit Ctrl+; twice to jump to the beginning tag and put in <!--.


Is there an easier way, some keyboard shortcut.  Are there any power tools for SPD or addins or macros I could record?

Thanks in advance

Thanks.  That works but it deletes any highlighted code.   So instead I write a code snippet which retains any highlighted code AND surrounds it with html comment syntax.  For anyone who needs it, the code snippet is simply

<!--

You must use the vertical piping symbol to retain highlighted code.
