3.3 APIs in HTML documents

        Element.tagName and Node.nodeName
        These attributes must return element names converted to
        ASCII _uppercase_, regardless of the case with which they
        were created.

and then
        The canonical form of HTML markup is all-lowercase;

also in section 3.3 APIs in HTML documents
        when looking at HTML elements, the argument must first be
        converted to ASCII lowercase

This seems inconsistent.  Should the first _uppercase_ instead be lowercase?
