If you have version 6 then it should run .nbp files just fine. Earlier
versions will not run them (they require functionality not present prior
to version 6).

If you go below the demonstration caption in the web browser, you should
see the author attribution e.g. Contributed by:... in a box. Below that
box there is a link "DOWNLOAD SOURCE CODE". Hit that link to get the .nb

If you do not have version 6 then this is your only option for playing a
demonstration. It will not show code in a .nbp file because none is
present. It should, however, allow you to see code in the .nb file
accessed as indicated above.
