The fact is that image inside h1 both comply standard, and is the best 
markup, if that image contains heading. If image is not heading, then it 
is not good to use h1 for it, of course, but I fail to see why h1 was 
used then, exept if OP doesnt know what is div element, and class 
attribute, in which I find unlikely, but maybe it is possible.

Exactly. If the important text in the image is heading, heading markup 
should be used, even if it does make it bit more complicated.

want good answer, try explain what you are doing...]
