    Browser's main title...

    Hello,

    What determines the copy that appears in the user's browser window title? I'd like to have a certain title appear.

    Thanks,

    The Title meta-tag. If your looking at this in IE, right click the page and view source. Look at the top of the Notepad file. Same thing also shows in the icon at the bottom of the screen in the browser expand button.

    Ahh, I see it now!

    So when Flash generates the html document, it titles the browser window by omitting the suffix?

    Can I simply change the copy in the title meta-tag in the html document without causing any other problems?

    Thanks,
    Todd

    Yes, you can change anything you want. Here's a stock set of meta-tags I use all the time, just replace the X's.

    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
    <title>xxx</title>
    <meta name="description" content="xxx">
    <meta name="keywords" content="xxx">
    <meta name="googlebot" content="noarchive">
    <meta name="revisit after" content="15 days">
    <meta name="robots" content="index,all">
    <meta name="robots" content="index,follow">
    </head>

    Also delete all the <-- comment tag stuff. It takes up bytes and no search engine today reads them.
