Good point.  As the CSS bits posted by another responder showed, the font
size should decrease in size as you move from h1 to h6.  I finally got
around to checking this out on my Mac this morning where I have multiple
browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox).  The font sizes do shrink.  On my Linux
box at work where I only have Chrome, the h3 and h4 render in the same size.
Since the h4 is bold, it looks like it is more important than h3.

I will fiddle around a bit with the CSS but won't expect miracles.  Thanks for
the responses.
