If a proper noun includes the word "the" and we want to refer to it using the definite article, should "the" appear twice in succession? For example:
"Can you pass me The Who CD?" vs. "can you pass me the The Who CD?"
"The US Government passed The Hague Act" vs. "The US Government passed the The Hague Act?". (this example inspired by a comment to this answer).
To me the first versions seem incorrect, but the second versions sound very awkward.
