What tool do you use to edit your TeX files?  In TeXShop you just  
highlight a stretch of code that you want to comment and choose  
Format-Comment from the menu (or hit Cmd-{).  In Emacs you highlight  
the region to be commented and hit "C-c ;".

I saw Morton's reply but I'd rather say "no," because the options  
mentioned in that FAQ are kind of slightly unnatural (you wouldn't  
write "if 0 {...}" in C to comment out "...").  Apparently Knuth  
didn't feel it necessary.
