The only reason there should be an image in a header is because it's part 
of it, as Chaarls referenced. If you need a specific font, then you should 
be using inline or externally referenced style. Such as:

p.header {
         font-weight: bold;
         font-size: 110%;
         text-decoration: underline;

The reference it with <p class="header"><img src="myimage.gif" alt="My 
Image"></p>. Even Netscape 4.x handles most font-related styles at this point.

Just my $0.02.
