  Hello,
  I don't know wether I should report this bug to Canonical or to Mozilla, so I'm going to do both.
  
- = System information = 
- Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr; rv:1.9.2.8) Gecko/20100723 Ubuntu/10.04 (lucid) Firefox/3.6.8

  = Bug Description =
  In an HTML4 strict page, the HTML comment Tag behaves innapropriatelly.
  
  This tag <!-- (lower than, exlamation mark, minus, minus) marks the beginning of a comment
  but, if my comment contains -- (twice minus) in the middle of it,
  then, the actual end of comment tag (twice minus, greater than) will be skipped -->
  And all the text and HTML code following the supposed end of comment will be included into this comment.
  The comment will remains opened till the end of a next comment, or till the next comment contains the > (greater than) symbol.
  
  See and test the attached source code.
+ See the screen capture of the FF "source code of the page".
