For example if a web page subject is "Blue Widgets versus Red Widgets".

Which version would you use in the title tag (or do you try and get all of them in there somehow)? Which version do most visitors search for?

I believe the "Vs" since its more popular than the "V" and there is no need to put all the sentence smaller the better. :)

In looking it up in the dicionary, the proper term for versus is vs. Going with a standardized dictionary abbreviation should work in any SE as they surely have data that says verus=vs.=Vs.=etc.

So, IMHO either Vs. or vs. would work. Most commonly found is vs. though. :)
