Re: page should contain no more than two h1 elements

Why I should need to repeat <title> in <h1>, every page has it own title that explain what one should expect in the page. and as far as I know screen reader read <title> first then having same text in <h1> not seems necessary but repeating. 

i checked w3.org site and they use image in <h1>
<h1 id="logo"><img alt="The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)" height="48" width="315" src="/Icons/w3c_main" /></h1>
 it seems it is just to fulfill the requirement that there should not be more than 2 <h1>. and as far as I know we cannot use <h2> before having <h1>.

besides using image in <h1> is new to me I thought we use only text in heading.
