adding the text that the title must contain text other than whitespace is 
fine with me.  Although it might be better to address the whitespace issue 
in the test that requires that the title describe the document.  Either 
solution is acceptable to me.

Re: [techs] tests  51 - title

We've been using the text "the empty string ("")" to mean the string is 
completely empty.
I don't recall a specific term for empty that includes whitespace. We can 
include that in the test though. The title could stay as "title is not 
empty" and I'll include text within the test that says something like 
"must contain text other than whitespace". Would that be OK?
