Default HTML block in Text field

I'm an experienced HTML programmer, but I need help with this one…

Not sure if this is possible… I have a blog site. One of the fields I can edit is the title of my blog. I've created a small banner that I'd like to use in place of plain text; however, when I enter the HTML img tags into the field, the code is always displayed as text. So basically, instead of entering my blog title of "Quick Slants," I entered something like <img src="image.gif">. When I refreshed the page, my new blog title was "<img src="image.gif">" and NOT the image I had created.

I know there must be a tag that disables HTML code; however, I was wondering if there is a tag I can use that will play with the code and make my idea possible.

Any suggestions?

Do you by title mean the title element, <title></title>? No, you can't put an image there. It can only contain text.

Or do you mean a "title" on the page, like <h1>My Blog</h1>? In that case it must be something your blog software or service does...

It sounds like your HTML is Html encoded before it's displayed. Are you using your own Blog engine or a ready made one? If the latter is true, I think this is done to prevent script attacks in your code....
