} elseif ( is_tag() ) {
	echo 'Tag Archive for &quot;'; single_tag_title(); echo '&quot; | '; bloginfo( 'name' );
} elseif ( is_archive() ) {
	wp_title(''); echo ' Archive | '; bloginfo( 'name' );
} elseif ( is_search() ) {
	echo 'Search for &quot;'.wp_specialchars($s).'&quot; | '; bloginfo( 'name' );
} elseif ( is_home() ) {
	bloginfo( 'name' ); echo ' | '; bloginfo( 'description' );
}  elseif ( is_404() ) {
	echo 'Error 404 Not Found | '; bloginfo( 'name' );
