At least in WF2, this seems to be caused by an embedded HTML comment.
There's a large block of HTML in a comment (including the 'DOM3 Load and
Save' note), and within that, the text
semantics of <code>method</code> and <code>enctype</code>
which prematurely ends the comment in both browsers (strange, as I would
have thought that Firefox would have just considered the part quoted above
to be outside the comment - which it does - and the part following to still
be part of the comment - which it doesn't seem to).
