The code download at the Github site: https://github.com/oreillymedia/beautiful_javascript is only 652K, and is essentially just a markdown text file with the same info as the markdown on the page above. Where's the example code?

1st Diagram

In the diagram depicting the Mixins' use case, the rounded boxes represent the actual buttons, however the naming is incorrect. We have "rectangular button" three times instead of once, accompanied by circular button and oval button.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The diagram on page 5 (right before the Classic Mixins section) has two incorrect labels: the round box that points to the “Circle” box should say “round button” and the round box that points to the “Oval” box should say “oval button”. The middle round box should remain the same.

Code does not work, giving this ReferenceError: ReferenceError: withButton is not defined

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 8 a call to withButton should be changed to withClickable.
