- Element of
- Semantic Markup
- What does
- The <address> element identifies contact information relevant to the current site, page, document, section, or article. It should not be used to identify addresses in any other context.
<address> You can contact us directly at <a mailto="firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a>. </address>
Contact Information, not Arbitrary Addresses
<address> element should be used to provide context-specific contact information (email, mailing address, social media URLs, etc.) relevant to the author of the current site, page, document, section, or article. For example, in a multi-author blog, you might include an
<address> element with the author's contact information within the
<article> element that contains the post. For contact information related to a whole website, you might use in the
<footer> of each page, or even on a stand-alone
Contact page. You must not use the
<address> element as a general styling element for arbitrary postal addresses. Use a
<p> for that and (if you need to) use CSS for address-specific styling.
<p class="postal-address"> 123 Main St. <br> Anytown, XY 12345 </p>
