i would like to figure out how to make this work:

define(`H1:',"ok ... this is title ")

Perhaps it doesn't.

File: m4.info,  Node: Names,  Next: Quoted strings,  Up: Syntax

3.1 Macro names

A name is any sequence of letters, digits, and the character `_'
(underscore), where the first character is not a digit.  `m4' will use
the longest such sequence found in the input.  If a name has a macro
definition, it will be subject to macro expansion (*note Macros::).
Names are case-sensitive.

   Examples of legal names are: `foo', `_tmp', and `name01'.
