Thanks for link Steve.

I'd be curious to know how search engine bots handle things. Seems
like Google's crawler would handle the "h1 only" because they seem to
be on the cutting edge in terms of web trends like html5.

Not only that, but doesn't Google help to develop HTML5 micro data?


"Major search engine operators like Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! rely
on this markup to improve search results."

I wonder if a developer could impliment a combination of ARIA roles
and HTML5 micro data and still use the "h1 only" approach for building
HTML5 documents? Seems like that could be the best of all worlds? No?
Am I dreaming? :D
