Title Group

Container element to hold the various titles for a document or a document component.


Best Practice: A footnote or other reference inside a title should usually be placed within the title tag, but such footnotes may be placed into a footnote group (<fn-group>) at the end of the <title-group>, if that is the way the footnotes have been placed in the original tagging of the article.
