User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

If I have an (x)html page (which validates) having multiple references to
external style sheets and all or more than one of them has title attribute in
<link> tag, firefox reads and uses only the first one of stylesheets having
title attribute in referring <link> tag. Example:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
  <meta name="generator" content="Vi IMproved" />
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
  <title>Title</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="vuoret.css" />
  <link rel="stylesheet" title="vieraskirja" type="text/css"
href="vieraskirja.css" />
  <link rel="stylesheet" title="lomake" type="text/css" href="lomake.css" />
</head>

In the example above only the vuoret.css and vieraskirja.css are used. However,
if I remove the 'title="vieraskirja"' attribute, all the css files are used and
page works correctly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Write an xhtml page having multiple references to external css files and all the
<link> tags having title attributes. Try the page with Firefox.
Actual Results:  
One or more external stylesheets are not used and page shows up incorrectly.

Expected Results:  
Show page having css displayed correctly.

By adding a title you are designated the stylesheet as the preferred stylesheet,
and there can only be one of those per document.  So the rest are disregarded. 
So what you are seeing is what should happen.
