HTML Title Tag: not context dependent

HTML Title Tag

Learned a great tip. The “title” tag is supposed to be meaningful even without context. Here's a quote from Source dev.w3.org:

The title element represents the document’s title or name, and should be meaningful even when read out of context.

So, for example, my article on functional programing: What's List Comprehension and Why is it Harmful?, the title element would better be: “Computer Programing: What's List Comprehension and Why is it Harmful?”. Note that you should keep it under 200 chars.
