The <credit> element
The <credit> element represents the appearance of the title, composer, arranger, lyricist, copyright, dedication, and other text, symbols, and graphics that commonly appear on the first page of a score. The <credit-words>, <credit-symbol>, and <credit-image> elements are similar to the <words>, <symbol>, and <image> elements for directions. However, since the credit is not part of a measure, the default-x and default-y attributes adjust the origin relative to the bottom left-hand corner of the page. The enclosure for <credit-words> and <credit-symbol> is none if not specified.
By default, a series of <credit-words> and <credit-symbol> elements within a single <credit> element follow one another in sequence visually. Non-positional formatting attributes are carried over from the previous element by default.

Since credits occur before the music, these page numbers do not refer to the page numbering specified by the <print> element's page-number attribute.|
