When you copy and paste code into a comment do you get an "Unknown macro: " embedded in your comment?

Sometimes when I copy lines of code into a comment, I see a "Unknown macro:" error embedded in my comment.

Here is an example of the code I'm copying:


        //      return false




This is how it looks in Crucible:



Unknown macro: { // return false //}




 Any idea why this is happening
