Probably, but if you will open in IE following
<html>
Edit me:
<div contentEditable="true">&nbsp;</div>
</html>
edit it and save it you will not see your changes in the document.

To be practically usable, contentEditable requires some additional UI 
like in-place toolbars, etc. Now this UI is part of web page and this
page is supposed to be a clean template I guess.
