Head of an HTML Document

The HEAD of an HTML document is where information (which might be ignored by some Web browsers), such as the document's title, can be placed. There are several elements that can be referenced in the HEAD of a document but we will concentrate on the document's title. (The document's title appears as the viewing window's title on browsers such as Internet Explorer and Netscape.)

The region associated with the HEAD of a document should be declared using the following HTML tags:

Should appear after the <html> definition.
Should appear after any HEADer text.

A typical entry in the HEAD of a document would be:

Title of the document
