Yep, that's about right

Better example: your page provides location info for the company, you  
might structure it as:

<h1>How to find us</h1>
	<h2>Driving Directions</h2>
	<h2>Directions by Public Transport</h2>


<h1>How to find us</h1>
	<h2>How to reach us
		<h3>Driving Directions</h3>
		<h3>Directions by Public Transport</h3>

Each of those sections/subsections could conceivably be its own page,  
but by putting them together on one, you organise hierarchically.
