    You should avoid using header tags to format non-header information, such as menues etc.

    The <H> tag is part of the fundemental web language, and everything else that surrounds www build on these cornerstones of formatting.

    A heading indicates a beginning of an encapsulated piece of information. These are in a sense Meta-tags as well, as they have functionality beyond the scope of appearance. If you just want certain text to appear bold, then CSS them. Class or ID, your choice based on structure.

    The H-tags have invisible strings to formatting hints with regard to search engines, and cataloguing features of advanced spiders from public libraries and what-have-you.

    Structural tags of the HTML language, should best be left alone, unless you want to use them in the original contextual manner. Remember that all the invisible extras that comes with the world-wide-contents-library, are based on some structural absolutes.
    Formatting basics of www's beginning (which can now designwise be replicated in numerous ways) are essential to how organizing/sniffing/presenting-robots do their job.

    If you master CSS, then let that knowledge govern your design. Don't try to alter the in-built features of pre-tags like <H>, unless you want the underlying SearchEngine functions of the tag.

    The <H2> tag, like any other H-tag, has pre-built <P> tag's incorporated. Later browser versions just shows the end <P> tag, while the dinosaurs (adhering to the original idea) shows both the separating beginning and end space (linewise) of a beginning header.

    IE mixed up the box-model. IE7 will fix this. Could we maybe sticky the IE7 info? It seems like at least once a week I give this link out (this is the second time this week).
