Yikes! For everyone else's benefit: what, exactly, did the comment say? Did it f'rinstance begin with a # character? Say you leave a note to yourself
<!--#foobar anchor to call this script -->
and then mod_include thinks "foobar" is the name of a directive that it doesn't understand.
I detoured to my test site, pasted in the above literal text on a random page, disabled my custom SSI error message-- comment, not visible text-- and indeed I got
[an error occurred et cetera
at point of insertion. Further experimentation shows that it's fine to begin a comment in # so long as you include a leading space.
:: rewind ::
exactly where the error message was showing up
In the body of the html? That's what I would have expected in the circumstances, but I thought the point was that the error message displayed somewhere else, like in the message area at the bottom of the browser window.
