I have received no response to the following.  I think it's worth pursuing,
because the sentence is actually confusing as it is currently rendered.  The
use of a monospaced font would help to reduce that confusion.  Because the
element in question is named "name", readers may not understand that the
words "element name" refer to the element named name, instead of merely
referring to the "name" property of an element.

Do you agree?
