I wonder if you could clarify something. I notice on the WAI site that a
heading level 2 is encountered first on a page. Surely this breaks
checkpoint :

3.5 Use header elements to convey document structure and use them
according to specification

As the headings used on the page are not in the correct order?

I know the W3C don't normally comment on specific issues with regard to
the WAI guidelines. But this issue has been discussed numerous times
with our own organisation and we are very keen to pass this checkpoint
as we operate the same method as used on the WAI site (start with an h2
then proceed to an h3 then to an h1)

Does the WAI site break one of its own checkpoint system?
