It should be <!--(blah blah blah)--> For some reason, maybe because they dont use traditional HTML

First, since Internet Explorer deviates so much, their conditional comments are technically invalid for XML compliance standards as well as HTML's. Now my message: To be more correct, possibly off-topic, following up on the other two comments I see, I'm going to use my knowledge of XML in this (just in case you want an XML parser to validate the comments...). Comments start with "<!--" and ends with the FIRST instance of "-->" that is found, so nesting comments will produce invalid code. There must be absolutely ZERO instances of "--" between the start and there must be ZERO extra "-" after the start or before the end. Examples for the start of a comment."<!---" three dashes/hyphens or more is invalid, but "<!-- -" having a space or other valid character BEFORE a dash/hyphen spree is okay.

@Malcolm Crowley, your iOS device is automatically converting them from - - to either ÔÇö or ÔÇô which means you should look in the system's settings and disable any auto-correct or similar features while using SoloLearn.
