I think that the original poster knows very well that he does not comply
with standards. He cannot be assured that his pages will get rendered
correctly in all browsers. Moreover, he demands more tolerance from the
browser, which he should not do.

Since there is no font size associated with an image, why not just use a
more suitable, rational element than HEADER? If one already breaks the
rules by embedding important text in an image, why break the document
structure too? Having said that, if the header contains mathematics that
HTML cannot convey, then images are fine.
