i see, but isn't that duplication?

<h2>Text
i read that as... "this is a level 2 section called Text"

<section><h2>Text
"this is a section, this is a level 2 section called Text"

doesnt that render the heading tags equivalent to font tags ?

  There are more elements to define (and to handle if you want to write
  software to, for instance, generate automatic tables of contents).
  There is an arbitrary limit on the number of sublevels a document can
  have. If you want to promote a subsection to a section (or demote, or
  make a page a subsection of another page) then you have to modify all
  the headings manually.
