In this list the terminals for ending and beginning comments are mentioned
as "<--*" and "*-->" several times, e.g. in the one this reply is based on:

In both WD-XML drafts a comment is declared without the "*" star, so are
the examples given (Clause [17] (9700331) and [21] (961114)).
Could someone of the knowing kind explicitly confirm the draft ?
