What does Markdown do with HTML comments? Recommendation on Markdown file extension?

Hi there!


It may sound awkward, but I would like to use comments in Markdown texts.
According to the rule that proper HTML works as HTML, I should be able to

<!-- blablabla -->

But the converters I use do strange things with comments. Is there an
official rule about that?


I wonder if there is a recommended standard file extension for Markdown
source files.
For my own files I always use `.markdown`.
But other important sources seem to prefer `.text`.

Do you have an opinion on that, or is there even a standard?
