ISSUE-738: UIA mapping for heading incorrect

UIA mapping for heading incorrect

ARIA 1.1 Core Mapping Specification
Raised by:
Cynthia Shelly
Opened on:
In UIA, headings and heading levels are mapped as a text attribute on a text run within the text pattern. The correct mapping is to add heading styleID to the text pattern run for the heading, according to this guide

Note that there is no way to map a heading without a level in UIA.
