Definition and Usage

The <address> tag defines the contact information for the author/owner of a document or an article.

If the <address> element is inside the <body> element, it represents contact information for the document.

If the <address> element is inside an <article> element, it represents contact information for that article.

The text in the <address> element usually renders in italic. Most browsers will add a line break before and after the address element.
