Yup, I saw that too. But that's about hover text giving
an action hint and not about in-page text editing.

Hmm, yeah, I saw that as well, but you don't see the full
interaction. There's too much text and not enough pictures.
Perhaps I'm just lazy, but I want to be SHOWN the full
interaction and not have to work it out from reading a
page of text.
And I realise now I want actually to know two things for each,
umm, interaction type (was:pattern): 1) that drag-and-drop
exists as an emerging standard and 2) what design elements are
needed / work / don't work.
For example in drag-and-drop, the mouse pointer changes to a
four-arrow cursor. Perhaps one also needs visual 'anchors' to
show that something is pick-up-able plus another visual cue to
indicate when a dragged element is over a droppable area. Or
is this stuff all being recycled from existing application
