            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

From http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/BUGS.html

XHTML user agents are required to remove comments from XHTML documents before 
further processing, hence e.g. 

<style type="text/css"><!--
     body { volume: 100% }

is to be ignored by those user agents. The CSS Validator should give a strong 
warning when encountering this and ignore the rules inside such comments.
