What's wrong with this cache page

I've seen this error on other cache pages as well, but I have not seen a pattern to when and why it appears besides Firefox being the only affected browser. There's something seriously wrong with the generated HTML, but there's no telling whether it's a server side or client side error.

The source shows that FF somehow misses the en of comment:

<!-- Description Written By: t--bone -->

<div class="UserSuppliedContent">

....

 

So all of short and long description are as comments! It might have something to do with the owner's nick "t--bone"

Actually, it's Firefox that's getting it right and all the other browsers are getting it wrong. Technically, according to the spec, the -- in the middle of t--bone is the end of the comment. Most browsers look for --> as the end of the comment, but that's wrong. Firefox is obeying the spec and using the first -- it finds.

 

The 2nd -- (right before the > ) is the beginning of a new comment.
