|(front matter) – Bundles prefatory text found before the start of the musical text.|
titlePage may be used to transcribe the item's title page. Other front matter structures, such as a preface, dedication, or table of contents, may be encoded as textual divisions; that is, as div elements, with an optional head sub-element describing the nature of the division. The pb element is allowed here in order to accommodate page images, e.g. cover, endpapers, etc. before and after the actual textual matter.This element is modelled on elements in the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) and Encoded Archival Description (EAD) standards.
