Simbiology notes allows (requires?) one to use html for nicely formatted notes. For normal documentation use, where there will be no sharing, simple html is ok. So the following is acceptable:
<body>
<p>
Hello World
<p>
</body>
The html one includes in a note may eventually be incorporated into an xml document. There are a bunch of version issues that could crop up and further document type and namespace declaration (as below) might be useful to avoid conflict. Is the xmlns declaration needed? What is the MathWorks recommended approach? Or is there a recommended approach?
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<body>
<p>
Hello World
<p>
</body>
</html>

I would recommend either plain text or XHTML 1.0 as your format. sbmlexport will export both of these to SBML as XHTML 1.0, which is what SBML documents as the intended format for Notes. These are also the only two formats that the SimBiology graphical interface understands.
That said, if you're not using SBML or care about the appearance of notes in the graphical interface, you are free to use any format you find convenient.

Thanks Arthur. Since the html commenting works great without the header, I'll continue to use that: it's nice to put graphs and charts into the comments.
