semantic HTML for intro text

Hi all,

Just marking up a page, the layout seems to require various tags, as
far as I can gather, I need seperate tags for:

- The intro heading (a <H2>)
- The orange intro text (not sure what tag to add here)
- a smaller, bold heading, same size as body text (probably a <h3>)
- a quote (probably a <blockquote> tag)

My question is, what would be the best semantic tags to use here, that
will be picked up by assistive technology and validate for XHTML 1.0
Transitional. In particular, I want to know about the Orange intro
text and the quote.

Any suggestions would be great, I have posted a JPEG here:
