Headings, numbering, W3C boilerplate etc, is all written in my ReSpec. 
So if you write:

<section id="foo">
   <h3>This is a level 3 header</h3>
   <section id="bar">
     <h1>This is a really important header</h1>

ReSpec will change that so that the hn element always matches the 
nesting so it would rewrite that as:

<section id="foo">
   <h1>This is a level 3 header</h1>
   <section id="bar">
     <h2>This is a really important header</h2>

HTML validation can help spot these things (https://validator.w3.org).

All the numbering, the ToC, the heading levels is all controlled by 
RePSec - that, I hope, will help you spend less time fighting!
