The PDF versions of the HTML specification works well because of the
proper use of these elements.  It means that the html2ps freeware tool
used to produce it can produce a valid PDF document outline tree without
any additional assistance.  At least one web browser can also produce
an outline tree.

One strategy supposedly used by some search engines is to report just
the headings as the summary of the document.
