    Description

      Every generated page contains a fragment like this:

      <!-- ========= END OF TOP NAVBAR ========= -->
      <span class="skip-nav" id="skip.navbar.top">
      <!-- -->
      </span></nav>
      </header>

      The <span> element contains both a newline and a comment and needs neither. They should both be removed.

      The comment was originally used as a "workaround" to prevent the <span> element being dropped for being empty by the internal HTMLTree.add code. We now have better ways to manage that.
