Btw, when I ran the following JavaScript on the page (replace all spaces
with middle dots), it made some of the examples much more clear (tested in
Google Chrome only):

var codeblocks = $$("pre.markdown code");
var space = new RegExp(" ", "g");

for (var i=0; i<l; i++){
    codeblocks[i].innerHTML = codeblocks[i].innerHTML.replace(space,

Just open the console and run that code on the page. Thought it  might help
others reading the examples.
