This really isn't a JDOM question...

> 1.1 Tier Pricing

See how DocBook (www.docbook.org) does this type of thing.

	<title>Pricing Details</title>

		<title>Tier Pricing</title>

The numbers of the sections is really more of an artifact of the
ordering of the sections than it is a discreet bit of data.

XML disallows elements starting with numbers, so don't even
think about it.
