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.

2. Tips and Notes

Tip: The <address> element will typically be included along with other information in a <footer> element.
