This is a funny bug; it's supposed to happen (mostly) when comments 
occur together and occur between floated boxes. However, I haven't seen 
this bug on any of my sites for quite a long time, and I /do/ comment 
the source extensively. This leads me to think that there is probably a 
simple (minded?) way around it that I've adopted withot realizing it.

Looking at the source of a few of my pages, I come up with this 
suggestion: try /surrounding/ the various containers with comments--that 
way, the comments can never occur one after another with no other markup 
between them. My commenting style looks something like this:

<!-- [foo: BEGIN] -->
<div id="foo">
  	<!-- [bar: BEGIN] -->
   	<div id="bar">
		<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetuer adispiscing</p>
	<!-- [bar: END] -->
<!-- [foo: END] -->

On the other hand, it's entirely possible that the layout I usually 
use--I use a modified version of a single layout for most new pages--is 
not susceptible to this bug in the first place and that that's why I 
rarely see it.
