What's the point? Replace it with an image or not, the function of the 
banner is to identify the Bugzilla installation and perhaps bring some 
graphical feel into the page. The fact that it may technically be an image 
is IMO irrelevant - I find it to be a good H1 because it _semantically_ 
acts as the first heading of the page.

Right. While this isn't particularly relevant here, I'll just say that DOM 
Inspector is surprisingly good help at finding CSS problems even with other 
browsers. Sure it can't catch rendering bugs, but it can help narrow down 
the problems by giving an accurate listing of which CSS rules apply and 
which don't. Cascade and selector recognition work mostly uniformly across 
browsers (as long as you exclude NS4 and don't use CSS2).
