The margin collapsing rules state that whichever margin is the larger will be the rendered space between the elements. And it's margins, not just line breaks, that you're seeing in the default behavior of H tags.
To get the following copy to butt right up against the header, both margins should be zero, although I prefer just a few extra pixels in there.
