This last bit was a bit confusing.  I believe that only if the title tag 
<title>key phrase, key phrase, maybe short company name</title> is empty 
that the bots will look into the page body for something useful to 
display in search results and as a bookmark.  I've never checked, but it 
may even look at meta description first before cruising body content 
such as h1, h2, etc.
