I've had the same confusion before, and have ended up trying to stick to
"heading". Having worked in journalism, "headline" has very definite
associations for me. "Heading" is seen in other equivalent contexts,
like Latex, but so is "header". "Header" stomps on the toes of
email/HTML/HTTP, though, so I come back to "heading"...

Two cents,
