<page-range> Page Ranges
Text describing discontinuous pagination (for example, 8-11, 14-19, 40).
The discontinuous page ranges “8-11, 14-19, 40” would be read as “a document 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 for a document 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> ...
