126.96.36.199.1 Use of Single Semicolon
Comments that begin with a single semicolon are all aligned to
the same column at the right (sometimes called the "comment column").
The text of such a comment generally applies only to the line on which it appears.
Occasionally two or three contain a single sentence together;
this is sometimes indicated by indenting all but the first with an additional
space (after the semicolon).
