Please help. I see my question but not an answer for "no title" showing up on my pages that I'm working to get validated at the w3.org site.
First of all, never had a problem all these years with it regardless of doctype. Yes, the <title>tags are in place in the <head> tags.
Also, instead of my discription i'm getting the first text on the page displayed instead, including the text of my drop down menus.
I am indexing offline and only htm and html pages. The ones before validation are indexed just fine, the others are indexed but do not display title and description, however the link to the page is good.
I've read here about stop-zoom tags but have never used anything like that in my pages ever.
