I didn't mean to be critical, but I definitely wouldn't encourage structures
like <h1><img src="foo"></h1>. It looks too organic and prone to breakage.
It also poorly conveys the structure of the document, which may become
crucial if you exported it to HTML into PDF, LaTeX or just copied it

What I suggest you do is this:

-Go to: http://www.csszengarden.com/

-View the source of the document

-Now have a look at: http://www.csszengarden.com/zengarden-sample.css

-Note the way they combine header images and actual text in a very compliant
and elegant way.
