If I do a post or a page with no title, I'm left with an empty h1 tag at the top of the post/page.

I'd like to either get rid of the h1 in these cases, or else be able to add an extra CSS class to the post/page so that I can specify how to display the post (and the h1) differently when the post/page is published with no title.

Are either of these things possible?

To add an extra class when there is no title

<h1<?php if(!get_the_title()){echo ' class="no-title"';}?>><?php the_title();?></h1>

Or to only display h1 tags when there is a title

<?php if(get_the_title()) { ?>
    <h1><?php the_title();?></h1>
<?php }?>
