Hi Bob,

I agree with Adam.

I would take advantage of the Search Engine Optimization aspects if you want
people to find your site.

Use the KEYWORD PHRASE that's most relevant to your theme.

Overall theme:  title KEYWORD PHRASE
Main heading:   h1 KEYWORD PHRASE
Sub-heading:    h2 KEYWORD PHRASE
etc...                  h3- KEYWORD PHRASE

In my original post I wasn't referring to the context/content of the 
header section,  rather - page design/flow only.  I guess I left this open.

I've seen a number of template sites which use h1, h2, h3, etc, in 
horizontal button navigation and slogan type sections just below a 
header and above main content.  Seeing well-known services do this gives 
the impression that it is the right (or acceptable) thing to do. What 
this all amounts to is avoiding practice as well - and I have some 
cleanup homework, myself.

Would it be semantically correct to use a <h1> to define the context of 
a page, then in both the main content section and a floating column 
begin with <h2>?

-->> or perhaps Dreamweaver, Adobe GoLive, Template Monster, Default, or
even "" - beats the sound of one hand clapping.
