I think I am confusing the "styling" of HTML5 elements with the
styling of ARIA's roles.

The attribute selector does not work in IE6:

header[role="banner"] {

But, I guess that is not so bad depending on the situation.

Also, I found this info on HTMLDoctor:

"Also note the use of two <h1>‘s within that piece of html, this is
perfectly valid in HTML 5 (and HTML 4) but will cause issues with

I do plan on having multiple/many articles on a page, so I am guessing
that I should avoid multiple H1s.
