Just to clarify, in that specific case, the *only* thing we can infer
for the subheading and subsubheading is the fact that they are level-2
and level-3 headings -- the template doesn't tell
global/header.html.tmpl anything beyond `hx = "foo foo foo"'. So I do
think that subheading and subsubheading apply here.

Nothing prevents, however, the template itself in adding an element that
allows us to distinguish what it is (<div id="bugform"> or whatever).

In hindsight, it was probably a silly suggestion, but I actually meant
<td><div class="subheading"></div></td>. I know <wink>.

You'll probably be surprised; our content is quite uniformy "plain". The
more complicated pages are search and show_bug. Once we've got header
and footer sorted out, we can tackle the individual pages as we go
(buglist is probably a good candidate for cleanups!)
