Hi all,

I remember this thread. So, I'll offer my once every 6-months chime-in. By all means, just use htitle or title (assuming parsers can disambiguate), 
but adopting a wee bit of formality might help you nail this once and for all and help the community handle this the next time it crops up.

We call something like "title" (or "htitle") a generic data element, which is defined as a "property" term (e.g., title), plus representation type 
(e.g., text) that can be used in combination with a variety of classes (e.g., recipe, book, position, etc.).

htitle. text

In your markup, just use htitle in context, but in your data dictionary you have entries like:

* recipe. title
* book. title
* product. title
* position. title
* job. title

Why? Because they **don't mean the same thing** So really this is one of those violent agreement things. +1 I'm just suggesting the wee bit of 
formality around the use of these "generic data elements" so the community can learn to recognize them and have conventions for dealing with them 
instead of rehashing every six months.
