Confluence ToC Macro Produces Error

When I insert the Table of Contents macro in an existing Confluence page, the following message is displayed in the Preview area:

Error rendering macro 'toc' : [com.ctc.wstx.exc.WstxLazyException] com.ctc.wstx.exc.WstxParsingException: String '--' not allowed in comment (missing '>'?) at [row,col {unknown-source}]: [348,41]

The page contains some HTML to hide the Like feature:

<!-- This is code to hide the Like feature --!>

 <style type="text/css">

#likes-section{display:none
!important;}

</style>

How is the error fixed?

I tested the TOC macro on a page with the following in an HTML macro:

<!-- This is code to hide the Like feature --!>
 <style type="text/css">
#likes-section{display:none
!important;}
</style>

I was not able to reproduce the error. Since the error is complaining about "--" in a comment, perhaps try removing the comment from the HTML as a test.

PS - the HTML did a great job of hiding the Like feature!
