Hi all,

I do like Steve's proposal using an existing element in h1 to create some sort of a hierarchy. But I must admit that the first thing that came to mind when reading Steve's proposal for <strong>, I wondered why the proposal wasn't for <small>. So depending on whether you want the smaller heading above or below the larger one, we could do either of the following: 

<h1>
<small>Breaking News</small>
Steve Faulkner had this crazy idea!
</h1>

<h1>
Breaking News
<small>Steve Faulkner had this crazy idea!</small>
</h1>

/Denis
