Phantom Title tag

when we are working on refactoring and migration our old project to new one we found a problem with <title> tag .  when you look the page source of any page there was always a second empty title element in head tag.
Then we searched all contentplaceholders and client pages with loosing time but we didnt find out  why that phantom title tag comming from . After some code work we relized and find out our mistake in contentplaceholder which is defined in head tag in master page of site.

Here is the errors :
Validation (XHTML 1.0 Transitional): Element ‘title’ occurs too many times.

Here is the problematic codes

<head runat=”server”>
    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID=”head” runat=”server”>
        <title> Project Master </title>

 we fix the problem using coding  like this:

<head runat=”server”>
    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID=”ctpTitle” runat=”server”>
    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID=”head” runat=”server”>
