It does work, with one (possibly major) exception: the title tag *must* be
in uppercase letters, e.g. <TITLE> and </TITLE>. <title>, <Title>,
or any
other capitalization will not work. This is a misfeature (not quite a
bug), and will no doubt be changed in a future release.

However, with current Apache releases (most likely though the 1.1 final
release), you must use all-uppercase title tags.

Thanks for using Apache!
