Internet Explorer / IE >> Tabs in IE 7

I created two home page tabs using the same address. Is there a way in IE 7
to rename or somehow differentiate one tab from the other?

rename or open Favorites Organizer and select the Homepage Folder then click
rename.

Internet Explorer / IE >> Tabs in IE 7 I tried this previously. This changes the names in favorites, not the tab
names. Is there a way to change the names that are displayed on the tabs?

Internet Explorer / IE >> Tabs in IE 7 Only if it's your web page. I don't believe you'd be able to do it but,
possibly they could be customized using the Internet Explorer Administration
Kit (IEAK).

Evidently it's the document's title property:

javascript:document.title

So if there was an equivalent object and a method (setTitle?)
we could change it on the fly using the Address bar.

This didn't work: ; [

javascript:document.setTitle("Manually set title?");

I.e.:

javascript:document;

returns

[object]

But how do I get a list of methods for that object?

I don't have Visual Studio installed on this partition;
otherwise I think its de**** might show me?


On another tack I notice that for HTML tags
there is the innerText method. But what object would
I use to specify that I wanted to change the document's
Title tag?

Ah. Foiled again. Re: innerHTML Property

http://www.hide-link.com/ (d=printer).aspx

<quotes>
The property is read/write for all objects except the following,
for which it is read-only:

TITLE [ http://www.hide-link.com/ ]

</quotes>

Hmm... there is still a glimmer of hope?
E.g. what does this mean exactly?

<quote>
Expressions can be used in place of the preceding value(s), as of Microsoft® Internet Explorer 5.
For more information, see About Dynamic Properties [ http://www.hide-link.com/ ] .
</quote>

E.g. does this work instead?

javascript:document.header.setExpression("title","Manually set title?");

Nope. But again, I don't know exactly how to describe the <title> tag
in the HTML as an object. That was just a guess.


FWIW
