Those look fine, although some might say that H1 should be the page title.

Hrm. I guess that doesn't seem to make much sense to me. If we are going
top-down, why would h3 jump all the way down?

I tend to think of it this way, although I don't think it is required that
others think of it this way:
h1 Most Important, once per page (site title, although page title makes
h2 Very Important, once per page (page title)
h3 Important sub-section headers (usually at least 1 or more per page)
h4 Narrower division of page content
I tend to think of it like an outline (note: this is my idea, not W3
--- page header ---
--- page body ---
--- page navigation/footer (*) ---
So having H3 at the bottom of the page wouldn't make much sense
(*) NOTE: I'm assuming you mean "at the bottom" without CSS positioning,
the way that it would be seen by Lynx or Google. My navigation stuff
tends to be on the left or right with CSS, but in the actual markup, it is
at the bottom of the page.
I wouldn't want to commit to relegating my H3 to footer text. You might
decide that you want to use it

Yup... em/strong have semantic meaning as well, but their default styles
are also italic/bold in most browsers

Yes. If there is just one on the page you can use <span id="foo"> but
only one (id="foo") per page.
ps - this seems a little more like evolt/thelist material than css, but
I'm not the OnTopic police.
