Applying StyleForm to String plus Table?

I want to Print a title line and below it a Table, both with the same 
text formats (options) applied, in a single output cell.  The three 
inputs:

    Print[ 
        StyleForm[  
            "Title text\n" <> TableForm[Table[---]], 
                    text_formatting_options ] ]

    Print[ 
        StyleForm[  
           {  "Title text\n" , TableForm[Table[---]] }, 
                    text_formatting_options ] ]

    Print[ 
        StyleForm[  
          "Title text\n" TableForm[Table[---]] , 
                    text_formatting_options ] ]

all "work" in the sense of producing something like what I want, but the 
first one gives me a StringJoin error message and prints the <> symbols 
before the Table; the second one prints the { } symbols and the comma, 
and the third one seems to do what I want.

I guess the lessons are the StyleForm is not Listable on a List (though 
it is, sort of, on a TableFormed Table);  and a TableFormed Table can 
contain Strings but isn't itself a String.  Interesting . . .
