"Using ARIA in HTML" could be more clear if markup that represents the
accessibility tree was styled differently than markup from the html it's
derived from, for example a different color, different case, maybe
right-aligning the block. Maybe even consider making the tag names
accessibility-specific, like this:

html tree: <h1 role="button">text</h1>

accessible tree: <AccessibleButton>text</AccessibleButton>

That would really stress the fact that accessibility objects are parallel to
the html tree, but distinct, and that the roles are not a perfect 1:1 match.
