What should happen with comments that contain "-->" when you serialize the 
DOM into HTML? When serializing into XML it should result in a fatal error 
according to DOM3Core[1], but I guess that is not really desired for HTML. 
Should the comment be dropped? Should the serializer insert a space in 
between ("- ->")?
