This brings up a very important point ... it really goes without saying that 
every piece of code in the tutorial should be tested, running code.

There's nothing more frustrating to a newbie (or even a seasoned programmer, 
trying to learn something new) than typing something in, having it fail and 
not knowing whether they've made a mistake or whether it's a typo in the 
documentation.
