HTML: address Tag

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

The address tag is for contact info of the article author or page's owner.

Contact <a href="">Joe Lee</a>.

browser shows:

Contact Joe Lee.

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

Write to Joe at <a href=""></a>.

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. [see HTML5 Page Article Tag and Page Structure Tags]

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