Without checking the HTML spec, isn't a comment supposed to end
with -->  with now white space ? .... we might be encouraging sloppy

n.b. a few browsers for NeXt barf unless they see a --> terminated
comment - they just stay in comment mode, so big chunks of documents
disappear. While includes are a special case of comment, it might
be better to be strict here too.
