No, they don't accomodate the running header, but for a reason.

You see, if eBook Publisher needs to reduce the image to fit, then that software should take into account the space left on the page and so should accomodate your running headers. I haven't tested this, though.

The image re-sizing issue only rears its head when the image is taller than the display max. height and eBook Publisher decides it wants to do a "half-baked" effort (I restrained myself here from using profanity) shrinking it down to size.

As long as the image is greater than your 430 (or my 446) in height, then eBook Publisher is in control...
