We find this example (quoted is the "Without markup" tab)

How to Tie a Reef Knot
by John Doe
This article has been tweeted 1203 times and contains 78 user comments.

However, the class is not employed in any of the examples: not in the microdata, RDFa or JSON-LD tabs. The only class employed is (and the only relation that Article has to WebPage is that they're both types of CreativeWork).

Accordingly, this example should either be changed to use WebPage, or removed. The only likely consequence of using an "example" for WebPage that does not include WebPage is to confuse users that look at the example.

Since @Aaranged started an example wishlist I'd like to add something to that.

In almost every use case I've encountered I've seen folks use the 'mainContentOfPage' property as if it's a 'mainEntity' property, meaning I've seen it be used in combination with types like Article, BlogPosting, Product, etc. but almost never have I seen it be used in combination with WebPageElement or it's subClasses.

Something I think finds it's origin in [a] lack of proper examples, and [b] lack of a 'mainEntity' property. So If a proper example get's written could please make sure it also contains an example of how one is supposed to use the 'mainContentOfPage' property?

Can we close this and take up mainContentOfPage and WebPageElement in another issue?
