Your final "- -->" together with whatever follows are within
your comment delimiter (which may be completely unterminated)
but outside any comment.  That's not allowed.

Or if you prefer, dashes have a special meaning in what you
think is a comment.  Never use more than one consecutive dash
until you understand my first paragraph.
