Does

   <part>
    ...
   </part>

have more semantics than

   <div class="part">
    ...
   </div>

or than

   <h4>Part</h4>
   <p>
    ...
   </p>
?

I am very excited about using HTML for the documents, and would like to 
be able to use OpenOffice to edit HowTos too. With xml elements I 
cannot, and with divs it's not very easy.
