My article titles aren't appearing correctly

There may be a couple of reasons. First, our automated system looks at each article's source code and extracts a title from the title meta tag. If there's no title tag, or if the exact title isn't included in the tag, our system may "guess" at an appropriate title.

Second, each article must link to a page dedicated solely to that article. When the headline on this page is an active link, however, we may have difficulty displaying it correctly. Making headlines regular text, not links, will increase the likelihood that our crawler will extract the correct headlines.
