Subject: epub: does using images instead of chapter titles produce a valid epub file?

Hi, there, I was planning a new ebook with my illustrator, and I stumbled upon something which I couldn't figure out.

My illustrator wants to use graphics (i.e., a jpeg file) to serve as the title at the beginning of the chapter.

How do you do that in the docbook way?

In a previous thread, Bob said that you could use an empty title element to suppress the chapter title.

But I would need to have a way for the chapter title to appear in the TOC (and also in the epub navigation document? Does anyone know?)

How can I use a graphic for a chapter heading and still have a nice looking TOC/epub navigation document?

This is actually a common use case in ebook production; often an illustrator will want to embellish a chapter title and maybe integrate it with another graphic. So I'd like a robust solution to this kind of problem (hopefully one already exists!)
