HTML5 “address” Tag

,

The “address” tag is for contact info of the article author or page's owner. Use it like this:

<address>
Contact <a href="../mary_lee.html">Mary Lee</a>.
</address>

The “address” tag can contain email or street address. For example:

<address>
Write to Mary at <a href="mailto:mary@example.com">mary@example.com</a>.
</address>

The main thing is that it marks up a contact info of the article. There's no strict structure of what content inside “address” tag should be. Also, the “address” tag is often conveniently placed inside “header” or “footer” tags. 〔☛ HTML5 Page Article Tag and Page Structure Tags

Note: the “address” tag should NOT be used for arbitrary address that has nothing to do with the author or page owner.

Here's how your browser renders it:
