     <p class="note">This doesn't apply to <code title="">Document.createElementNS()</code>. Thus, it is possible,
     by passing this last method a tag name in the wrong case, to
-    create an element that claims to have the tag name of an element
-    defined in this specification, but doesn't support its interfaces,
-    because it really has another tag name not accessible from the DOM
-    APIs.</p>
+    create an element that appears to have the same tag name as that
+    of an element defined in this specification when its <code title="dom-tagName">tagName</code> attribute is examined, but that
+    doesn't support the corresponding interfaces. The "real" element
+    name (unaffected by case conversions) can be obtained from the
+    <code title="dom-localName">localName</code> attribute.</p>
