Hi Rishi,

Shape comments are not exported and not available in a Visio 2002 drawing's
Save as Web output. The abililty to display a comment string in the web
output is under consideration for a future version. You can check progress
on the new version at:

One option to do this is to use shape custom properties to store the
comments so they will appear in the Web output when the VML save as web
output option is used, or to put the comments in a second shape hyperlink so
that the comments will appear in the hyperlink menu when it is invoked. I
hope this helps.
