From what I understand, browsers treat an iframe as a separate page for security reasons.
Based on that, I don’t think relying on inheritance is sufficient for styles, scripts or language.
However, the iframe itself can have a title (attribute), so I don’t think another title (element) in the iframe source page will help particularly.

If an HTML page can only be accessed via an iframe within another document and is in the same language as the parent document – is the HTML page in the iframe subject to the success criteria for page titles and document language?  Are pages allowed to meet the SC via inherited page titles and languages.  Any thoughts?

Best Regards,
