Hmmm. Sry. It is as soon as im working inside a state, or something like that. (What you call it?)

Look this:
$form = <<<ENDFORM
<form action=noter.php method=post>
<tr>
<td><input type=submit name=tilføj_note_l value='Tilføj_note_linje' > </td>
</tr>
</form>
ENDFORM;
echo $form;

How to exclude the <td> line? In my file its all grey text for now. Im not sure, but it seems to be the grey text i cant exclude.

If you cannot edit the region, than you may not be able to comment the line out.  It looks like you're missing your PHP opens and closers though.  The HTML inside a php would kind of not work right.  Look at this:
$form = <<<ENDFORM
/* assuming you are inside a PHP code block here, you close it with this -> */  ?>
<form action=noter.php method=post>
<tr>
<?php /*let's hide this line by opening another php code block and then commenting it out with a double slash */
//<td><input type=submit name=tilføj_note_l value='Tilføj_note_linje' > </td>
/* also need to close that block here too */ ?>
</tr>
</form>
<?php //needs to be reopened here
ENDFORM;
echo $form;

When you use heredoc notation, you can't simply comment out a single part of the code. You have to just delete it. Otherwise, if you need to include or exclude some part accordingly to some condition, you have to write two forms:

$form1 = <<<ENDFORM
<form action=noter.php method=post>
<tr>
<td><input type=submit name=tilføj_note_l value='Tilføj_note_linje' > </td>
</tr>
</form>
ENDFORM;
$form2 = <<<ENDFORM
<form action=noter.php method=post>
<tr>

</tr>
</form>
ENDFORM;

if (your condition here)
{
    echo $form1;
}
else
{
    echo $form2;
}
