How do we store comments in README.MD markdown here on bitbucket?

The markdown specification states that if we use <!-- --> we can store comments that do not render with the rest of the README.  this does not appear to work in bitbucket repositories.  this does work on github repositories.  is there another method of storing non-rendered text in markdown syntax?

Hi David, welcome to the Community!

Some HTML tags are not currently supported in Bitbucket Cloud's implementation of markdown. This is tracked as a suggestion for Bitbucket Cloud: BCLOUD-6930 .

As a workaround, you can put comments in with the following format in your markdown files and they won't be rendered:

[comment]: # (These are my comments)
