Rewrite of the XML comments section in FDP
There are two serious problems in section 7.5 (XML comments) in the FDP (see also http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xml11-20060816/#sec-comments):
1) 'The delimiter for XML comments is the string "--" ...'. This is wrong. An XML comment starts with the string "<!--" and ends with the string "-->".
2) The fourth example in "Example 7.6" is wrong. It is not a valid XML comment because an XML comment must not contain the string "--".
I suggest a complete rewrite of that section.
