No, every XML document is a legitimate WebSGML document.
But would every SML document be a well-formed XML document?
That example is one that SML would have to have a policy on:
one that would constrain documents to being XML is to barf
whenever <! or <? was found.
If you want a less bracketed mess, then pick any one of
<a><!-- <a/> --></a>
<a><!?x <a/> ?></a>
<a><![CDATA[ <a/> ]]></a>
<p>In HTML, use the <!-- comment delimiter open </p>
