from a *purely* semantic position, there is only one 'first' header on a
page; again, being purely semantic, you should have a single h1, and all
the rest of the <h>s should follow in appropriate outline/numeric

rudy makes a strong argument for exceptions which I won't repeat here
for fear of sounding like I agree with him ;) but as far as I know,
there's no validation failure (Bobby? dunno) if you misuse your <h>s

of course, if you're just using them as *styles* (size, font, etc.),
that's evil.
