Only be careful that you don't have two or more sequential hyphens in 
the text you put there.  I think it's for this reason that the Vim 
sgml syntax-highlighting rules refer dismissively to that style of 
comment as "wrong" and "Netscape instigated".  

The vim syntax rule default to using plain "<! " and ">" as comment 
terminators.  This works in HTML 4.x but is not part of the DTD.  
Doesn't work in sgml (not with Docbook, anyway).  Just the Vim 
maintainer being sniffy, I suppose.
