comment-whitespace-inside

Require or disallow whitespace on the inside of comment markers.

    /* comment *//**  โ†‘         โ†‘ * The space inside these two markers */

Any number of asterisks are allowed at the beginning or end of the comment. So /** comment **/ is treated the same way as /* comment */.

Caveat: Comments within selector and value lists are currently ignored.

The fix option can automatically fix all of the problems reported by this rule.
