[thelist] h1 as business name or content

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.
