<head01> First Heading

<head01> is a formatting element used, along with <head02> and possibly <head03> to designate column heads in a multi-column list within <listhead>. This element designates the first column heading. Do not confuse with <head> which designates a heading for an entire list or section of text or with <thead>, which is used for column heads in a table.
