A container element for additional page information to record discontinuous pages ranges, such as “8-11, 14-19, 40” (i.e., an article begins on page 8, runs through 11, skips to pages 14 through 19, and concludes on page 40.
The <page-range> element only supplements other page elements and DOES NOT replace <fpage> and <lpage>. The <fpage> element and the <lpage> element (where available) should always be tagged; infrastructures for linking references across publishers (such as that of CrossRef) use first and last page information on an article as part of their identification process. Accordingly, material with a page range should be tagged:
<fpage>8</fpage> <lpage>40</lpage> <page-range>8-11, 14-19, 40</page-range>
<!ELEMENT page-range (#PCDATA) >
Text, numbers, or special characters
