Careful with the comments in the HTML, putting things like "needs to be fixed" etc. can end up being left for the client (and world) to see. (searching for comments in google's code thing can be amusing / spoddy but may surprise as to what gets left in.) Comments may be more relevant in programming code (JS, PHP, etc.) rather than HTML but I wouldn't exclude comments from HTML. I would add to that "Valid (X)HTML" - validate before posting. But a step towards this would be creating valid and usable templates that others can use.
