I guess you posted using Firefox? HTML code is acted upon if you post using a non-IE browser. (In this respect, IE7 is termed a non-IE browser as the text area section only works for rich text in IE up to IE6).
Why not define a SPAN or DIV element with the require H2 styling and then use that rather than H2? That way the validator shouldn't spew at it.
BTW - when it comes to web pages validation is useful, but not imperative - non-valid pages will still likely be displayed, and probably correctly. (Most) web standards are not like old programming standards - there is leniency and flexibility. Some might argue that this is to the detriment of web standards, but that's a whole other discussion. :-)

What is the validator actually complaining about?
I'm not aware of any restrictions WRT to headings in table cells in the (X)HTML DTDs.

Like MHenke, I've had no trouble validating pages with Hn in TDs. It might help if you post the URL of the page so we can see exactly what the validator's saying. Also I suspect the validator loses track if things are deeply nested - one of my pages gets a complaint about closing tag without opening tag and I've eyeball-checked the code until I'm cross-eyed.
