.html() fails if argument contains a comment with embedded start tag #4124

Calling html() with an argument containing a html comment fails if the comment has a start tag embedded somewhere.
I don't care about the comment itself, but the non comment part of the argument should be processed.
This bug occurs at least in FireFox, Edge and Chrome (I suspect other browsers as well), in 3.x versions of jquery, not before.
A work-around is to embed the argument in a div.

It's generally a bad idea to supply input that is not well-formed (i.e., you are missing end tags for your <p> elements). However, in this case there really is a bug with our element detection logic. Fix coming shortly.
