Absolutely. The spec allows that explicitly. > <OBJECT data=TheEarth.avi type="application/avi"> > <OBJECT data=TheEarth.gif> > <H1>The Earth</H1> > </OBJECT> > </OBJECT> But this is a very bad idea. <H1> is a structural element of the document, not just a font size. Coding it this way means that your document has different structure depending on what browser (or search engine, or conversion software...) is reading it. What you want is to make the text stand out, but not make it logically a heading. Either use <strong>, <big>, <em class="imagealt"> with a style sheet (probably best), or (gasp!) <font> (still better than H1 in this case). After all, do want your document indexed by its picture descriptions or by its real headings?
