You have done something rather different to what was suggested.

You no longer have a template matching comment() so when you do
		<xsl:apply-templates select="comment()"/>
the default template will be executed, which in the case of coment nodes
produces no output.

Then you generate a c element node and do
			<xsl:value-of select="."/>

. here is / ie the whole document, and value-of therefore produces the
string value of the document which is the concatenation of all
characters contained in any element (but not comments).

you want
<c><xsl:apply-templates select="comment()"/></c>

together with a template matching comment that does

<xsl:value-of select="."/>
