http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/  correctly treats

   <style type="text/css">
   <!--

as a comment in XHTML with "application/xhtml+xml".
It also issues a warning

|  Do not put style rules inside HTML comments

Test case:
 http://www.unics.uni-hannover.de/nhtcapri/temp/no-comment.x.html


However, with "content-type: text/html" there is no such warning
and the <style> is recognized.

I think there should be also a warning with "text/html".
