Related Elements

A number of elements in the Suite relate to page numbers:

Note: The <page-range> is intended to record supplementary information and should not be used in the place of the <fpage> and <lpage> elements, which are typically needed for citation matching. The <page-range> element is merely a text string, containing such material as “8-11, 14-19, 40”, which would mean that the article began on page 8, ran through 11, skipped to page 14, ran through 19, and concluded on page 40.
