I have used fontspec to style all of my headers with a new font with:

% Specify different font for section headings
\newfontfamily\headingfont[]{Gill Sans}
\titleformat*{\section}{\LARGE\headingfont}
\titleformat*{\subsection}{\Large\headingfont}
\titleformat*{\subsubsection}{\large\headingfont}

Now I want to style my document title to use Gill Sans as well since it would match the style of the rest of the document. How do I do this?

    It depends on the class used: KoMa classes probably have their method for managing the font for the title, the standard classes don't. The solution depends also on what you want precisely: only the title or the whole title block? – egreg May 18 '11 at 7:50

For the standard document classes you can use the titling package to do this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage{titling}
\usepackage{fontspec}
% Specify different font for section headings
\newfontfamily\headingfont[]{Gill Sans}
\titleformat*{\section}{\LARGE\headingfont}
\titleformat*{\subsection}{\Large\headingfont}
\titleformat*{\subsubsection}{\large\headingfont}
\renewcommand{\maketitlehooka}{\headingfont}
\author{An author}
\title{The title of the article}
\date{\today}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\section{A section}
\subsection{A subsection}
\subsubsection{A subsubsection}
\end{document}

I am a beginner with LaTeX. This answer helped me change the font type of the sections. But it did not change the font type of the title to match that of the sectioning. It was not so obvious to me, so I am putting the answer.

It turned out all I had to do is the following:

\title{\headingfont {The title of the article} }
