A believe what the original poster means is a smaller title immediately
following a proper one, at the same level of the section hierarchy. The
title attaches to the same structural element as the major one. I think
this is best handled by two consequtive h elements in XHTML 2.0, and CSS's
+ selector, or using classes to separate the two. After all, the smaller
title is semantically a title for the same section, and so nicely follows
the way h's are supposed to be used.
