Harold A. Driscoll quoted from RFC 1866:
>     <p> <!- not a comment, just regular old data characters ->

While we're here, what does this example mean? Are the
'not a comment' characters supposed to be ignored?
Displayed as text on the user's screen? How about the
'<!-' characters? If '<!-' is displayable text, how
about '<*'? '<title*'? The above example opens
a whole can of worms which the text then simply fails
to discuss. I've never seen a web browser which will
display the above example as text.

Cheers
