HTML and CSS Reference
Browsers do not specially format title text, and they ignore anything
other than text inside the title beginning and end tags. For instance,
they will ignore any images or links to other documents.
Here's an even barer barebones example of a valid HTML document, to
highlight the header and title tags; watch what happens when Netscape
displays it in Figure 3-3 :
<title>HTML and XHTML: The Definitive Guide</title>

Selecting the right title is crucial to defining a document and ensuring
that it can be effectively used on the Web.
Keep in mind that users can access each document in your collection
in nearly any order and independently of one another. Each document's
title should therefore define the document both within the context of
your other documents and on its own merits.
