According to the test procedure for H25 putting the title in the body would fail H25.

However, then the question is if you meet 2.4.2 or not.  You can meet a success criteria without meeting a specific technique.  In this case, it is nice that some user agents support adding the title to the DOM and displaying the text in the window title, but given the number of assistive technologies out there that also need to be tested to see if this completely non-standard way of handling the title work as desired, I’d far rather see the title element just used correctly.

Subject: Technique H25 / real life

Hello accessibility enthusiasts,

I would like to have your opinion about the following point related to technique H25<http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-TECHS/H25.html>.

The "procedure" section asks to look for the title element in the head section. From a strict point of view, if a title is in the body, this technique should be failed. But, in such a case, browsers (at least Firefox, Opera and Chromium) do catch the title and present it to the user.

That being said, from your point of view, is technique H25 still failed ?

Thank you for your answers !
