Placing the Logo - An IMG tag inside H1s

XHTML

Although the IMG is the rightly the easy option, it's not always as robust as you might think for users with 'CSS on' but 'images turned off'.

Certainly Opera and Firefox do a fine job at rendering the ALT text as a viable replacement for the logo. However IE renders a nasty looking 'missing graphic' icon and super-imposes the ALT text in barely legible 10px type.

Safari with images turned off -- no ALT text shown

However the real eye-opener is Safari, where turning off images leaves no evidence that any logo ever existed.
