2.16 The Preamble

The preamble is the part of the source code that comes after the \documentclass command and before \begin{document} (the start of the document environment). Only a few special commands may be placed in the preamble (such as \title), and there are a few special commands that may only go in the preamble (such as \usepackage). Nothing that generates text (for example, \maketitle) may go in the preamble.

\documentclass{...}
