Re: Headings: requirements vs best practices

Right, and the <title> tag goes in the head.

But how does the <title> title relate to the <h1> title, if at all? Which roles does <title> play? Does WCAG or anything else mandate anything about it? The <title> tag used to show up in the document window title, but these days document window titles are often gone (definitely on mobile devices, and in tabbed window browsers they have become pretty useless once several tabs are there).
