MyISAM on master and InnoDB on slave server

Is this possible to have a MyISAM table on master server and change its storage engine (to InnoDB) on slave server in a replication environment?

If this is possible, what should I consider before changing MyISAM to InnoDB on slave server?

Here is the table structure
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. CREATE TABLE `messages` (
  2.   `id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  3.   `subject` varchar(255) NOT NULL default '',
  4.   `message` text NOT NULL,
  5.   `attachment_path` varchar(255) default NULL,
  6.   `new` tinyint(4) NOT NULL default '0',
  7.   PRIMARY KEY  (`id`)

You can have different storage engines on master and slave.
