Er, not that fine :-)

 From <http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/intro/sgmltut.html#idx-HTML>

HTML comments have the following syntax:

<!-- this is a comment -->
<!-- and so is this one,
     which occupies more than one line -->

White space is not permitted between the markup declaration open
delimiter("<!") and the comment open delimiter ("--"), but is
permitted between the comment close delimiter ("--") and the markup
declaration close delimiter (">"). A common error is to include a
string of hyphens ("---") within a comment. Authors should avoid
putting two or more adjacent hyphens inside comments.

Double hyphens ("--") enclose SGML comments...
