Best Practice: We are uncertain how much this element will be used for books. In current journal publishing practice, information naming one contributor as the corresponding contributor may be tagged explicitly using a <corresp> element or may just be one of many footnotes <fn> concerning the contributor. Although this Suite supports both practices, when possible, the correspondence information should be tagged using the <corresp> element.
