Ahhh! Why can't I find you? Degrading Popup (CSS only?)

I'd imagine Andy meant that IE won't internally be able validate it  
(because it "sees through" the comments to something that's invalid)  
-- thus IE will degrade to quirks mode and a lot of other things you  
had designed under the assumption that IE would be in standards mode  
will be "off".
