           Summary: HTML5 should not 'strongly encourage' authors to use
                    only H1 level headings
        QA Contact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org
          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: All
          Reporter: faulkner.steve@gmail.com
          Hardware: PC
            Status: NEW
           Version: unspecified
         Component: HTML5 spec
           Product: HTML WG

The HTML5 spec currently states the following advice [1]:


"Sections may contain headings of any rank, but authors are strongly encouraged
to either use only h1 elements"

Given that this advice is predicated on the implementation of the outline
algorithm in browsers which  has not occured and by all anecdotal indications
this is unlikely to happen soon if at all, I suggest that it is not appropriate
to include this advice in the spec.
