We think it may be an actual bug in HTML::Parse or somewhere.  It doesn't seem to handle nested html comments like:

<!-- outside comment
<!-- inside comment

I refactored the html test data this evening and split the 'comment' test into 2 tests.  One for simple comments <!-- simple --> and one for nested.  No one has tackled the actual code or standard yet.  It may be that nested comments aren't valid html, but may be supported in the spirit of 'be lenient in what you receive'?

Leland volunteered to update the kwiki... I suspect you'll see more info on our days activities by tomorrow.  I'll probably send something more to the list also...

A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
