BUG: Script Fails to Change the Document Title of a Web Page
Article ID: 296113
This article was previously published under Q296113
Internet Explorer fails to change the document title when client-side script sets the innerHTML property of a title object that CreateElement("Title") creates.
To work around this problem, use the document.title property to set the title programmatically instead. For sample code that demonstrates this workaround, see the "More Information" section.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
