    Il include the comments.php code:

    <?php // Do not delete these lines
    if ('comments.php' == basename($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'])) die ('Please do not load this page directly. Thanks!');
    if (!empty($post->post_password)) { // if there's a password
    	if ($_COOKIE['wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH] != $post->post_password) {  // and it doesn't match the cookie
    <h2><?php _e('Password Protected'); ?></h2>
    <p><?php _e('Enter the password to view comments.'); ?></p>
    <?php return;
    	/* This variable is for alternating comment background */
    $oddcomment = 'alt';
    <!-- You can start editing here. -->
    <?php if ($comments) : ?>
    	<h3 id="comments"><?php comments_number('No Responses', 'One Response', '% Responses' );?> to “<?php the_title(); ?>”</h3>
    <ol class="commentlist">
    <?php foreach ($comments as $comment) : ?>
    	<li class="<?php echo $oddcomment; ?>" id="comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>">
    <div class="commentmetadata">
    <strong><?php comment_author_link() ?></strong>, <?php _e('on'); ?> <a href="#comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>" title=""><?php comment_date('F jS, Y') ?> <?php _e('at');?> <?php comment_time() ?></a> <?php _e('Said:'); ?> <?php edit_comment_link('Edit Comment','',''); ?>
     		<?php if ($comment->comment_approved == '0') : ?>
    		<em><?php _e('Your comment is awaiting moderation.'); ?></em>
     		<?php endif; ?>
    <?php comment_text() ?>
    <?php /* Changes every other comment to a different class */
    	if ('alt' == $oddcomment) $oddcomment = '';
    	else $oddcomment = 'alt';
    <?php endforeach; /* end for each comment */ ?>
    <?php else : // this is displayed if there are no comments so far ?>
    <?php if ('open' == $post->comment_status) : ?>
    	<!-- If comments are open, but there are no comments. -->
    	<?php else : // comments are closed ?>
    	<!-- If comments are closed. -->
    <p class="nocomments">Comments are closed.</p>
    	<?php endif; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php if ('open' == $post->comment_status) : ?>
    		<h3 id="respond">Leave a Reply</h3>
    <?php if ( get_option('comment_registration') && !$user_ID ) : ?>
    <p>You must be <a href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-login.php?redirect_to=<?php the_permalink(); ?>">logged in</a> to post a comment.</p>
    <?php else : ?>
    <form action="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-comments-post.php" method="post" id="commentform">
    <?php if ( $user_ID ) : ?>
    <p>Logged in as <a href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-admin/profile.php"><?php echo $user_identity; ?></a>. <a href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-login.php?action=logout" title="Log out of this account">Logout &raquo;</a></p>
    <?php else : ?>
    <p><input type="text" name="author" id="author" value="<?php echo $comment_author; ?>" size="40" tabindex="1" />
    <label for="author"><small>Name <?php if ($req) echo "(required)"; ?></small></label></p>
    <p><input type="text" name="email" id="email" value="<?php echo $comment_author_email; ?>" size="40" tabindex="2" />

    <?php endif; ?>
    <!--<p><small><strong>XHTML:</strong> <?php _e('You can use these tags:'); ?> <?php echo allowed_tags(); ?></small></p>-->
    <p><textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="50" rows="10" tabindex="4"></textarea></p>
    <p><input name="submit" type="submit" id="submit" tabindex="5" value="Submit Comment" />
    <input type="hidden" name="comment_post_ID" value="<?php echo $id; ?>" />
    <?php do_action('comment_form', $post->ID); ?>
    <?php endif; // If registration required and not logged in ?>
    <?php endif; // if you delete this the sky will fall on your head ?>
    Code (markup):

    	margin: 10px 0 0;
    	border-top: 1px solid #ccc;
    	padding: 10px 0 0;
    .comments-template ol{

    The issue isn't in comments.php. It's likely before comments.php is called. Try looking at single.php (assuming this is wordpress of course).

    You are either missing a " or ', or you have an extra one somewhere. Search for the phrase comments-template in the other template files (Ctrl+F in Dreamweaver) and see what it turns up.
