Some webdevs do comments like this:

<!--comment comment--!>

It displays correctly in web browsers (chrome and firefox checked). Wget does
not recognize the termination.

I invoke Wget with:

start wget -nd -r -l 0 --reject-regex sort=nam -I /neopets

Using "--strict-comments" fixes it for this particular website. I don't know
how it sees the comments in this mode, is it 


The only occurrence of a "-->" is towards the end of the webpage and that is
what is throwing naive comment parsing off. Maybe a strict html comment just
can't be pieced together on the website.

I also suspect that naive comments mode parses this block differently from
chrome, not sure though.

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "ca-pub-2676160449557179";
/* indexbase */
google_ad_slot = "6483197392";
google_ad_width = 300;
google_ad_height = 250;
chrome does not see a html comment there
