Button for h1 h2 tags

Hi. The two things I miss most using CD is the ability to insert a heading tag without having to switch into HTML mode.

I generally use a heading tag for the pages' headlines, but I inevitably want to insert a couple more further in the article.

My primary motiviation for using <h1>, <h2> etc. tags is that keywords used in heading markup (sensibly) can improve search engine results...

Of course, I could just create a couple of variables to do the job for me.

  {$.h1 $} insert heading here {$./h1 $}

(or a more meaningful/identifiable variable-name amongst content editors).

Seem to keep talking to myself. Ignore me.

I for one agree.  Once we are at it, how about a few fonts?

Well, that's a feature I've missed too. What's about a simple "way" to add element- or class-styles to a document? A drop-down-list in the toolbar of CD would be perfect.

... and variable line spacing...

Using {$.h1$} variables is less than ideal, because you'll still end up with <p></p> tags around your <h1></h1> tags. It'll probably render OK in most browsers, but it's still ugly.

I reckon Fog Creek will add an easy way to do headings to CD3.0 - plenty of people have asked for it for a long time, and FC listens.
