The instructions will also work for eBay profiles.
In order to change the title, copy and paste the following code at the top of your profile page box:
<!-- Hide from Neanderthal browsers
top.document.title = "Insert your title here";
(If desired, parent.document.title can be substituted for top.document.title. In most cases, it will work just as well.)
That's all there is to it! For an example, you can look at my custom WebRing profile.
The fix works with the Active X browsers (including Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher, NeoPlanet, and the AOL browser), with Opera 7.0 or higher, and with all flavors of Gecko (including Netscape 6.0 or higher, CompuServe 7.0 or higher, K-Meleon 0.6 or higher, and Mozilla or, in its present incarnation, SeaMonkey). It does not work with Netscape 4.x or with any versions of HotJava and Lynx.
Please leave your comments in my guestbook (or read what others have written).
