Questions tagged [front-matter]

The front matter of a document (in particular, a book) contains everything before the main body of text: the title page, tables of contents, dedications, prefaces, etc. For questions about specific parts of the front matter, use the respective tag (e.g. {titles} or {table-of-contents}).
