I'm confused about the purpose of h1/h2/h3 headers...

I understand that there's a sort of hierarchy with these tags, but what's the main purpose of putting text into h1 vs h2? isn't text size controlled by CSS? What's the point of using an <h2> tag to make text smaller than the text in the <h1>?

It's more about structuring the priority of the content than the styling.
