I knew about /* */ for C#. That multi-line comment style has been picked up by numerous languages because it can be so helpful to block comment code.

I didn't know about REM still being accepted, but I guess that makes sense.
Here is VBA code from an Excel spreadsheet I just opened up to try it out.
Sub commentTest()
    Rem this is a test
    Rem you shouldn't really be seeing this
    ' these are the comments that vba seems to expect
    
    MsgBox ("rem alert")
    
End Sub


That's funny too, because in Excel the Rem statements turn green (as you said) and they are recognized as comments, but the code parser here on the site doesn't seem to recognize those statements as comments.
