SWISH has a compile time limitation placed on how many lines into the
file it looks for the title.  The value that comes with the distribution
is 12.  If the title line starts more then 12 lines into your HTML on
the files that are funky, edit config.h and modify the line:

  #define TITLETOPLINES 12
