Why are you creating comments in the HTML that you generate rather
than creating the HTML directly?

This is what disable-output-escaping is designed for (although if you
can fix the problem by not generating the HTML in comments, then that
would be much cleaner). Try using:

<xsl:template match="comment()">
  <xsl:value-of select="." disable-output-escaping="yes" />
