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. (See: 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:

Contact Xah Lee.
