Currently, screen reader users who navigate by headings constantly hear the word "edit" at the end of each heading because section edit links are part of the <h#> elements. It should be changed so that the <h#> elements contain only the heading text, with the section edit links separated out.
This was originally a bug for the link coming before the heading text, which has since been changed. The original description is preserved below:
For users of screenreaders (and textbrowsers) it takes quite long to walk throught the headlines. At every single headline they hear "" first instead of the real section title. This could easily be changed by let the edit-section-link come second in the rendered page and let the section title come first. There would not even be visual changes for seeing users and users of graphical browsers.
