your html is wrong...
you must write :

<title><?php echo $title ?> </title>

With the "head" tag, IE & Netscape will display your title correctly.

  Passing string variable to HTML TITLE tag fails within Netscape but work
  well within IE.

  I have a single page consisting of inventory items to be sold. When an item
  is selected, it passes the product name to a DETAIL page as part of the
  TITLE tag for the DETAIL page. My problem is: Netscape does not like the
  SPACES between the text and refuses to display the DETAIL page.

  Initially, I thought there might be some way to parse the string and add the
  ascii code for SPACE, but I wasn't sure if I was on the right track. Does
  anyone have a proven solution to this problem?

  I thought the pseudo code might look something like this:
      while stepping through the characters in this $string_holder 
          { if character = " " (or some other representation) 
              replace it with something that doesn't 
              scare netscape or title tag 
  return $string_holder; 

  if (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS["itemname"])) { 
      $title = (parse_and_change($HTTP_GET_VARS["itemname"] )); 
      $title="Generic Product Title"; 

  <title><?php echo $title ?> </title>
