Hi Anthony,

By doing it the way Nick's done it keeps the code cleaner and reduces the risk of possible issues as the project grows. There's the possibility of additional H2 tags being used as standard headings later in the project, which might not need to be center-aligned.

Also, by keeping his logo self-contained with an id of logo, it makes it easy for Nick (or any other developer that works on the project) to locate the necessary styles in the css and allows the developer to change them safely without affecting anything else on the site.

Hope that helps,

Joel
