What's the reason to have <h4> and no <h2> <h3>

I know. I only didn't manage to get it to work. I wanted <h4> a bit 
smaller (it's the same size as <h4>), but adding
h4 {
   font-size: 10px;
to head.txt didn't do the trick. Probably my own ignorance. I'm pretty 
much a newbie when it comes to making webpage.

I would suggest to have h2 a bit smaller then h1. And h3 a bit smaller 
then h2 etc. Or you can vary a bit with bold and italic if the font size 
becomes to small. It would be nice that all html tags had their own 
mozdev styling, such that if you write html without explicit styling 
everything fits in the mozdev style
