Hmmm. I reckon that the proposed use is probably valid, according to the
specification.

I think something like "Use the HTML heading elements <code>h1</code>,
<code>h2</code>, ..." is better english expression.

I would try to keep the use of variables to examples of program code,
mathematics, and so on.

  Or "Use the h1 to h6 elements", yes. What should <var> be used for then?
