Hi Bruce,

Really good feedback. This is definitely a demo we can improve on. Instructions are a good first start, but I think the simple nature of the demo probably doesn't show the various affordances for editability we've built into the component.

I've filed a bug for this particular issue:

Before reading that I was not able to edit anything (clicking on bold words and typing did nothing, and nothing else I thought of trying worked), and there were no error messages.

I guess I only tried those specific bold words, but that was enough to make me think it was "not working". (And indeed the claim that all the bold words are editable is wrong.) So this error is amusing in hindsight, but IMHO it needs fixing on the page, either by making those words not bold or (preferably) by making them editable. (And adding some instructions would be a good idea as well.)
