Negotiable.  What I work with now is:

Line 1: "<!--"
Line 2: "Description: [1]"
Line 3: "Expect:      [2]"
Line 4: "-->"
Line 5+: HTML

where [1] is human readable, and [2] is computer readable.  [2] will 
likely need to be adapted anyway, so don't worry too much.  Something 
language neutral or xpath-ish would be ideal.


Description: extraneous quotes
Expect:      html/body/a[@title="foo"]
<html><body><a href="#"" title="foo"></body></html>
