fig.update_layout(title_text="update_layout() Syntax Example",

fig.update_layout(title_text="update_layout() Syntax Example",

fig.update_layout(title=dict(text="update_layout() Syntax Example"),

fig.update_layout({"title": {"text": "update_layout() Syntax Example",
                             "font": {"size": 30}}})

fig.update_layout(title=go.layout.Title(text="update_layout() Syntax Example",
