Hello –

I’m running the Nu Html Checker using the bookmarklets for checking serialized DOM and then filtering for WCAG 2.0 on this webpage:  http://shop.westerndigital.com.
We are receiving the following nesting error:


Error: Element title<https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/#the-title-element> not allowed as child of element body<https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/#the-body-element> in this context. (Suppressing further errors from this subtree.)

From line 259, column 2; to line 259, column 8<https://validator.w3.org/nu/#l259c8>

ink -->↩ <title>Wester
Contexts in which element title<https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/#the-title-element> may be used:
In a head<https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/#the-head-element> element containing no other title<https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/#the-title-element> elements.
Content model for element body<https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/#the-body-element>:
Flow content<https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/#flow-content-2>.


However, the title element is being used above the body element in the code.  Why is error being displayed?
