[Ironruby-core] Error on Names documentation page

I see what you mean. I wouldn't call this "overriding" because these two methods are completely unrelated. So it's like you defined two Ruby methods Create and create.
On the other hand, when a virtual method is overridden the override is bound to the virtual one.

Sure.

C#:
public class Something
{
  public static Create()
  {
    Console.WriteLine("Creating Something");
    return new Something();
  }

  public Something()
  {
  }
}

IR:
class SomeSomething < Something
  def self.create
    puts "Creating SomeSomething!"
    super
  end
end

SomeSomething.create
# prints "Creating SomeSomething!
#         Creating Something"

If the IR method was named self.Create (with a capital C), the next will 
happen:
SomeSomething.create
# prints "Creating Something"

Thanks,
Shay.
