It takes me back to when I wrote in COBOL. Comment blocks preceded paragraphs that awere to be kept to 50 lines or less, comment marks slewed each paragraph to the top of page on hardcopy, and horizontal tabs (HT characters) right-aligned asterisks for the right wall of the box. Given monochromatic and mono-type source editing and printing, a comment box was a useful construction. They were also where your versioning notes were placed.
