Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1
Build ID: 20120713134347

Steps to reproduce:

Trying to use the CSS spec here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/CSS/Using_CSS_gradients 
It shows 2 images for each gradient demo'd. One says "Live Demo". What's live about it? 


Actual results:

Clicking on it does nothing. I can't edit the code.


Expected results:

I would expect to be able to edit the "Live Demo" code so I can see the effect of making changes in the "Live Demo" image.
The screen shot on the left is a bitmap. The live demo runs in the browser. If you tried it with a browser that did not suport CSS gradients then only the left image would show.

What titles would you suggest?

How about bitmap vs CSS3 rendered image? Live demo suggests that there's user interaction involved, but there isn't. To me, live demo indicates that I can edit the gradient code and see the results of that edit in the "live demo".
