Wording cleanups

Wording cleanups in "Determining if an element is displayed" section.
- using "displayed" everywhere; avoiding using "shown" and "visible" to be consistent.
- emphasize MUST, normative language where appropriate.
- change the order of the checks so that cheap/quick checks precede the expensive.

Attached patch contains no "functional" changes.

Note for the editor: please first apply attached in bug

This commit then *should* cleanly apply to the tip... Good luck.
