Hello,

Is there a loose of information in the MODS schema about the <title> element
?

If you have a title like this  (in ISBD format ) :
"title : subtitle"
In (UNI)MARC format there is a subfield a and subfield b to distinguish
title parts.
But in MODS, the value is the concatenation of theses subfields.

Why not using a subtitle element :
<titleInfo>    <title>Once upon a time</title>    <subtitle>there was a
familly called Pot</subtitle>    <subtitle>[the begining of an english
lesson that i learned when i was 13 :-)]</subtitle></titleInfo>
