<address> tag

HTML5 <address> tag

You can provide the contact details of author of the page  using the <address> element.

The text of the <address> element will be in Italic.

The best way to use the <address> element  is inside these tags –

  • <footer>
  • <body>
  • <article>

If this tag is present inside the <footer> or the <body> elements, then it sets the address information for the entire site.

If this element is present inside the <article> tag, then it sets the address information of the author of that particular article.

<address>Contact details of author/owner</address>
