I believe the newest version of JAWS makes use of the <h*> tags for
easier navigation through webpages.  I don't see any harm in using
images inside header tags but it does seem to go against 'traditional
style' of developing webpages.  Does anyone know the 'skinnee' on this
(JAWS and <h*>) as well?

Subject: Images in Headers

On another list, someone has brought up the use of images inside of <h1>
<h2> elements.

I did a quick search on the archive, and wasn't able to find anything on
this.  I'd just like some quick opinions.

Personally, I don't this that images should be used for headers, unless
need a specific font.  Then you could use the "alt" tag.  Right?
