Every HTML document must contain a
title element. The title
should identify the contents of the document in a global context,
and may be used in a history lists and as a label for the window
displaying the document. In contrast with headings, titles are
not normally displayed in the text of a document itself.
title element must occur within the
head of the document, and
may not contain anchors, paragraph tags, or highlighting. There
may only be one
title in any document.
While there is no specific limit to the length of titles, long titles may be truncated in some applications. To minimize this possibility, keep titles to fewer than 64 characters. At the same time be aware that a very short title, such as Introduction, may be meaningless out of context.
An meaningful title might be
<title>A Recipe for Maple Syrup Flap-Jacks</title>
