Surely the best solution is not to put the javascript into a comment
Even for HTML this is a dubious practice which just happened to do the
right thing in some set of installed browsers. For XHTML it's definitely
a bad idea as XHTML's script element isn't CDATA (as XML doesn't have
CDATA elements) so the <!-- syntax really is a comment and so the XML
parser will treat it as a comment and not pass the script to the script
engine at all.
