Images do NOT go between heading tags regardless.
Because images are not titles and it is semantically incorrect to use them between title tags. Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean it is the correct way to do it. SEs will not see anything but the image tag and what is in it.
Why not? I do it all the time.
Might work if you include the title="" attribute inside the image tag along with the alt="" attribute. The title="" attribute is the correct one to use for the tooltip anyway. IE has always gotten it wrong by providing a tooltip using the alt="" attribute.
Just best NOT to use images inside the heading tags. Of course, it doesn't matter a lot until you start using XHTML 1.0 and want to be SE friendly.
