What does <& mean? Is it some sort of comment??

I just encountered a page which displays improperly in Netscape (7.1 and
4.7) - it shows lines staring with <& and ending with &>

These lines do not display with I.E. 6.

Is this <& some sort of comment which only IE understands?

The page in question is
http://www.ketc.org/whatson/tvschedu...7&format=short

The lines are:

<% ' Part 1 of the image %> <% ' Part 2 of the image %>

and

<% ' Part 3 of the image %>

Bob

Those tags I'm wondering about are <% and %>

Not <& and &> as I typed in the original message.

I've been up too long, since very, very early this morning, and need to
get some sleep

It's <%, not <&. My guess is that they're trying to use ASP comments,
but they don't have ASP enabled (at least for that page).
