Re: heading question

I differ from others, heading order is crucial for me.

Everyone I know who relies on a screen reader (I don't rely on one) has
told me this over the years. I know WCAG is different, but in my view it is
a problem. Think of reading things every day with a screen reader, and not
knowing what was going on, because the headings were totally out of whack.
After all, I have to ask, why then do headings have numbers in the first

I know others will disagree, but I don't call it petty at all.
