(I haven't gone back to figure out the problem for non-firefox users.)

Yeah, there's a theoretical problem there: when you select or deselect a
box, it changes the size of the document, quite a lot, so you get
totally lost (if any of the changes are above you in the document).  So
I made it add an anchor and jump to that anchor.    I'd be interested in
better ideas.    

(I suppose one option would be to have a section with a scroll bar, for
each example, that never changes in size.  Another option would be to
have the check boxes just change that example.   Maybe there could also
be a button that said "apply these preferences everywhere in this
document" (more briefly), and that one would lose your place.   Or maybe
at the very top there would be a control that affect all the examples,
and the other controls would only affect their particular example..... I
kind of like that.)
