^^^ pointing to description of the process ^^^

This is out of date?
It was updated a month ago.

Be sure sid is in apt.sources, then...
apt-get install package
That should get sid if you have no /etc/apt/preferences

or the more sureshot way
apt-get -t distribution install package

Look at 'Keeping a mixed system' in the doc mentioned above, or search
for apt preferences, or apt-pinning to keep control of things
