In Firefox, all text after <!-- shows up in the browser. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. I created an html page with <!-- text -- text --> and checked it in the browser. 2. 3. Actual Results: text -- text --> evaluates as text in the browser window. Expected Results: Not displayed the HTML comment. <!-- <!-- text -- text --> resolves the issue. I assume the literal string '-->' should be looked for or --[^\w+]> or something.
