The text for your "HTML comment" prints out. I believe that <! -- will
print out as plain text under HTML rules since it is not a valid
comment.

The text at
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/intro/sgmltut.html#h-3.2
.4>
indicates that an html comment may not begin with "<! --", as white
space is not allowed after the "!". Your impressive validator at
<http://validator.w3.org/> accepts it however in case of my page at
<http://cap-lore.com/test.html>.
