...except the wording needs to be changed a bit. Step 3 says:

    Otherwise, if the body element is not null, then replace that element
    with the new value in the DOM, as if the root element's replaceChild()
    method had been called with the new value and the incumbent body element
    as its two arguments respectively, then abort these steps.
