Need help with InstantSearch.js

Trying to use InstantSearch.js without success!!
Here is my html code below (with my appId and apiKey xxxed out.
If I read correctly the instantsearch.js page, at this step, I should see some results coming back from my index!! I get none. I am executing this html file on my Mac. The various <link …> commands operate correctly (I get the content if I click on the link in source mode).

I have the same behaviour when using the appId and apiKey provided in the documentation.

Thanks for any hint!!
