This one threw me for a loop.  I was thinking that I could just about any
text inside an xsl:comment.  Not so.
Apparently one cannot put a sequence of two dashes (AKA hyphen) in a comment
nor end the comment in a dash.

e.g.  I wanted to put a visible demarcation in my HTML output using dashes
in a comment.

<xsl:comment> ---------------- Do not read below this line

My work around is to put in periods
<xsl:comment> ................ Do not read below this line

Are there other character rules that I should know about xsl:comment?  
Is this something that should be put in dpawson's FAQ?
