I guess I should have looked up the dictionary definition earlier on. I  
just looked it up now, and 1 of the definitions for "title" is "a general  
or descriptive heading for a section of a written work". I was wrong. If  
we look up "heading", we can see the same idea. I must say that I'm pretty  
surprised. I've never heard of anybody using "heading" & "title"  
interchangeably, outside of HTML.

I still think that <H1> shouldn't be used to describe the title of a  
document, but hey, what can we do when the dictionary disagrees? Then  
again, the dictionary isn't right by default.

Sincerely, and with thanks,
Eugene T.S. Wong
