Its not useless,

If a button somewhere else on the page calls a javascript function,
which reads the value of the editable area, and  uses document.write
to create a form and then submit it, which in turn causes the data
to be saved to a db. The the page can be its  own editor.

I had not found this attribute in HTML Recommendation ...

I don't understand Uncle Billy - why does it good, to allow the user, that
can edit the content?
I tried it:

<p contenteditable>Is this editable?</p>

So, I could edit the content in the browser window.
I see it to a thing, what is beautiful, good, but  useless - as the
Microsoft's programs...
