Re: HTML heading hierarchy for XHTML

Actually, nesting plain "div"s seems sufficient in Amaya and in MSIE:

 <h1>First Order Heading</h1> 
   <h2>Second Order Heading</h2> 

Using "id"s (names) might be pretty, but as Jany points out, they make the
structure inconvenient to modify. Retaining the <hN> elements seems useful
for backward compatibility with HTML. 

I'd be interested in hearing why OpenJade might be a better solution, but
Tidy still seems to be appropriate for this variation of HTML-to-XHTML
conversion. Does this seem feasible in the simplified form above?
