I'd suggestion that you add the following to the <title> quality tip.

Enjoy,

<p>The title is generally duplicated in an <tt>&lt;h1&gt; 
element towards the top of the page. Unlike the title, this 
element can include links, emphasis and other <a 
href="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/struct/text.html">HTML 
phrase elements</a>. Often, webmasters will use an 
<tt>&lt;h2&gt;</tt> element instead, to make the heading 
smaller. This is incorrect, <a 
href="http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/">Cascading Style Sheets</a> 
should be used to create this effect.</p>
