How long do you think google going to keep taking heading tags seriously?
How do you know they take them seriously now?
Style sheet cheating comes to mind
Changing the size of the font of a header tag is not considered "cheating." It's not the size that the search engine would care about (if they actually do care), it's the fact that something is a headline. Or so the old wive's tale goes... :learn:

2.3 Other Features
ďAside from PageRank and the use of anchor text, Google has several other features. First, it has location information for all hits and so it makes extensive use of proximity in search. Second, Google keeps track of some visual presentation details such as font size of words. Words in a larger or bolder font are weighted higher than other words. Third, full raw HTML of pages is available in a repository.Ē
If they have kept to their original design this would indicate that the size of the font is a consideration. Though I agree that the use of heading tags for document structure is benign, I often see them being used inappropriately for the added weight it brings, and then covering it up by changing itís appearance.
By the way, Love the new forum.

I know our wondeful moderator, Dan Thies, was doing some tests to study this, but I don't know if he's come to any conclusions yet. Will have to check in with him to see.
Glad you like the forum!
