The text was written from a hands-on POV. Agreed that if you had not got a
StrongED html page open to try it, then it would not have made sense!

As you are the only person interested enough to comment I have expanded it
slightly so it should now make sense!

Well, it's better... but the IMPORTANT part of what you've changed it to was
mentioning the carriage return on the end.  If you initially said

  Typing   ``1This is a heading      followed by Carriage Return

then I probably wouldn't have asked. It must be the CR that tells SE that
the end of the related literal text has been reached.

In fact, your

  "The ``1 bit is expanded immediately as soon as you type it since the
Carriage Return at the end on the line being typed means it is floating."

is confusing.   This cannot be right:

  "The ``1 bit is expanded immediately as soon as you type it"

at least not because of the CR, because you haven't typed the CR (or the
preceding literal text) yet.  You've only typed ` and ` and 1.

Why, precisely, CR is a trigger but, for example, space is not, is still
not clear.

Further down where you describe \n, \t etc, the line about \@ has a typo
in it and mentions \' where it shouldn't.
