Yes, I thought of the same solution, but I considered that if the  
preface was taken out of the preliminary documents, which surprised  
me a bit, it should exist a good reason for it.

I think that there is maybe a confusion between what is "first book  
content",  i.e. what occurs only one time at the very beginning of  
the book, and what may occur more that one time, for example preface,  
not necessarily at the beginning of a book, but still is "first book  
content" in the sense that it is preliminary contents to part of a book.

And then another confusion between the classification of those parts  
and their numbering which may vary depending on the usage in  
different countries.

Make perfect sense to me, and English is not my native language as  
well :-)

Thanks for confirming what effectively seems to be a bug.
