LOL – Wait! I thought that idea was yours, Jen. I wouldn’t have called it “genius” if it were my idea. ;-) J

Lastly, do you believe it would be useful to have what you did on your Pro HTML5 demo with the "Open Editor" link so people can edit the example and see it change on the very page?  Basically it's a live editing concept where you see the results as you type.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm proposing. I tried to explain as such in the notes at the bottom of the <nav> example. Running code examples (a la codepen or jsfiddle or the one Lea created for Web Platform) embedded into the page are ideal. From what I understand, that's not possible on the current mediawiki website, which is why the running code examples all open on a separate URL. Julee had the idea of at least putting an example of the output on the page, even if it's all static and can't be edited. I'd love to see technology running web platform.org<http://platform.org> evolve into something that does support simple, inline, editable code examples.
