First of all, you need to know about tag markup. Tag markup does not allow to change the content of the text and is surrounded by a pair of curly braces and percent signs. There are two types of tags: comments and raw. Comment enables you to leave un-rendered code inside a Liquid template while raw tag temporarily disables processing of Liquid markup.
