By saying "XHTML comments"  I meant "HTML comments that also conform to 
the XHTML comment syntax". I don't know if that answered your question. 
An XHTML comment looks like this: <!-- comment -->. As you can see it 
is a simple subset of the HTML4/SGML comment system -- because 
SGML/HTML4 allows a more elaborate/gotcha comment system.
