The internal source viewer shows the source code as uncommented when a second
closed comment comes after a non closed first comment. The browser handles the
uncommented source as commented.
Either the source viewer should show the code as commented or the browser should
parse it.

I think this bug depends on bug 170276.
First it must be clearly defined what's the correct result.
Is the source code commented or uncommented ?

sgml clearly defines what should happen.

Probably one of the bug 57724 cluster. View-source passes through the 
HTML tokenizer right now to do syntax coloring when it should probably 
have its own tokenizer, but that's not really a good job to tackle with 
harishd moving away from full-time parser work.
This is a dup in any case (of the "view source always parses comments in quirks
mode" bug).

No, I think this isn't a dup of bug 57724, because the source looks correct in
the viewer. The code is (nearly) identical with the code I viewed in IE and in
"sam spade" and the first comment is really not closed.

Sorry for my inexperience when Mozilla shows the comment correct.
(In that case the page is rendered wrong.)
OK.  I looked at the actual site.  It's in quirks mode.  The comment is
correctly parsed per quirks mode.  The site does not show up for a totally
unrelated reason (unclosed <title> tag).

Yes, that's the bug.
Next time I will verify the correctness of the source code before filing a bug.
