Hello there out there in 'Puter' land! I'm new to this forum so help me with any mistakes you notice I'm making please (not just with coding)! Lol! There was supposed to be some humour in that . . . but even I didn't laugh!
At any rate . . . the 'title' box in my index file (all the files) is the subject here. How to control the size of this box (or can you)
In Firefox I had a lengthy little write up in there and it displayed it just right.

In IE . . . the box was long but only had room for one-two lines. The extra text just shot out in to cyber space out the end of the box and disappeared. If there was a way to 'wrap' the text it would probably fix this problem. I tried entering html in the 'title' but to no avail.

Any ideas

Here is the Doctype and meta tags as such . . . .

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>

<title>Welcome to Johnnyderek.com - John Derek & his wife, Barbara Ann have been playing music at weddings,house concerts and Churches in the Okanagan since they moved back to Kelowna, BC. Have a listen to the music . . . then give them a call for your 'Special Event'! They'd both like to hear from you! Sincerely, Dewey Egbert, Events Manager @ Dewey Egbert Entertainment.</title>

<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8">

<!--Then in hear is my Google Analytics-->

<!--Then my link stuff and I close the 'head' tag-->


<style type="text/css">
A:link {text-decoration: underline; color: #000000;}
A:visited {text-decoration: none; color: #000aaa;}
A:active {text-decoration: none; color: #d0d0d0;}
A:hover {text-decoration: underline; color: #000000;font-size:165%;}
</style>

</head>
<body> . . . . . .

Like I said the 'title' shows up just fine in FF (13.0.1 but not IE (8)

I'd appreciate any insight. It's probably some little thing I forgot to do but doggone it if I can figure it out. Thanks!

And Chrome makes it rather difficult to see the title element at all. (I ended up installing a plug-in so I could see the title element when reading online forums.)

If you want the user to see it, then put it in the content in elements like h1 headings and p paragraphs.
