Dear Ingo,
why not use <fw> for your page numbers (which is meant exactly for 
running heads, including page numbes), and then you can use <head>.
Also, I think corresp="KMG2Pref1" should really be corresp="#KMG2Pref1"
Best,
Tomaž

> <div type="preface">

>   <lb /><ab type="mainHeading">PREFACE</ab>
>   <p>
>     [...]
>   </p>
>     [...]
> </div>

> As you can see, in addition to <pb/> page numbers are also encoded in
