# [texhax] Problem with \begin{abstract} and \begin{keyword}

Hi,
I'm a beginner with LaTex, and I'm preparing an article to submit to Elsevier. So I'm using the elsarticle document class. Well when I include the \begin{abstract}, and \begin{keyword} nothing happens, nor even an error, but nothing different appears were it should be.
Something similar occurs with the e-mail addresses of the preamble, they don't appear in footnote. I've already consulted the general and specific documentations. Furthermore the elsdoc (the specific documentation) says that the \begin{abstract} and \begin{keywords} must be in the preamble, it looks like wrong to me, ad when I do that I get an error.

Well, I wasn't able to find a correspondence list to write to, so I'm as king for help here, but I know that probably the wrong way to do that... Any way I'll appreciate if someone could help me.

Thank you fot the patience and attention!

Bellow is the code:

\documentclass[1p,review,authoryear]{elsarticle}

\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage[brazil]{babel}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\title{My Title)}

\author[focal]{R.~Aluizio\corref{cor1}}

\author[focal]{C.A.~Borzone\corref{cor2}}

\cortext[cor1]{Principal Corresponding Author}
\cortext[cor2]{Corresponding Author}

\date{}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

\begin{abstract}
My article abstract
\end{abstract}

\begin{keyword}
my \sep keywords
\end{keyword}

\section{Introduction}

\section{Materials and Methods}
