Assuming this hasn't changed since 2.7.2, in its most valid comments
mode, Lynx requires >, following a correctly balanced -- and optional
white space.  I presume that dropping out of end_comment state is
error recovery for the, obviously invalid, case of non-whitespace

code conditional on minimal mode.)
