>From what I can tell, apparently the parser doesn't let you have two
hyphens in a row without them being the two that precede the greater-than
symbol (ie, any two hyphens in a row have to be the beginning of the
comment-close [which seems pretty funky to me]). For example, this chokes:
  <?xml version="1.0"?>
  <project name="test" default="noop">
  <!--
      +-------------------------+
        This is a comment block
      +-------------------------+
  -->
      <target name="noop"/>
  </project>

$ ant -f comment.xml
Buildfile: comment.xml

BUILD FAILED

D:\comment.xml:4: Next character must be ">" terminating comment .

Total time: 0 seconds

This doesn't:
  <?xml version="1.0"?>
  <project name="test" default="noop">
  <!--
      +=========================+
        This is a comment block
      +=========================+
  -->
      <target name="noop"/>
  </project>
