Re: What determines the default 'swishtitle'?

At least in version 1.x, there is also a condition where a document 
that has a <title> tag will not have that <title> tag found due to it

necessary, for example, if your documents happened to have a pile of 
Javascript above the title tag. I was waiting for Bill to respond to

mention it, I thought I would throw it out in case you're having that
