Comment (by hnla):

 However headings they are and headings they ought to be sadly what you're
 describing are theme issues with styles if there are issues with floated
 elements then somewhere there need to be rules to clear elements of
 sibling floats and this patch didn't purposfully take into account styling
 which is a seperate mater. Markup should always be used in a semantic
 manner it's then a matter for visual styling to decide how it wants to
 render that to screen. Best way of understanding this and a practise
 important to follow is to always disable styles to see what the DOM is
 creating by way of structured markup flow.

 I take the point though on what is being seen but sadly to circumvent
 those issues probably means taking correct elements and changing to
 something like a paragraph tag but that isn't a correct use they are not
 paragraphs - or we visually style those new elements to render them
 smaller. One issue that always will arise with themes though is that of
 describing headings as it's too easy for heading to be inserted out of
 sequence upsetting a natural flow.

 I guess we can and ought to address a few simple styles if we go with this
 re-factoring which I can attend to later.
