        Quoth David Woolley: 'I can only see one title element using
view source under Firefox'
        Every 'The New Yorker' page I have viewed has 2 instances of:

        <title id="tnyLogo">The New Yorker</title> 

in addition to the first one, which has the 'real' title.  Perhaps you
looked for <title> only.
        JAMA articles used to have 2 titles; the second was empty (!).
I told them; they stopped.  I don't claim they stopped because I told
them.  (They responded to my message.)  lynx displayed an empty title.

        Quoth David Woolley: 'it would be invalid HTML for there to be
more than one title element'
        I don't claim multiple titles are valid.  Some authors use
them, lynx makes a choice.  I'd prefer it choose the first one.  I
don't say this is a bug, just what I'd rather.  I leave decisions up
to developers.

        Quoth David Woolley: 'Normally HTML5 would require well
defined behaviour for an erroneous document, but I couldn't, on a
quick search, find out how browsers are supposed to cope with multiple
title elements.'
        Firefox & Opera display the first.
