HTML Address Tag

Address Tag in HTML

The address tag is used for defining some information about the owner of the particular document. The information can be anything like website URL, social media accounts, email address, es, and some other contact information.

For example, if the address tag is being used within the article tag, then it is representing the contact information of the author of the article. If the address tag is written inside the body, it is representing some kind of information related to the document. In short, the address tag contains the contact information of its nearest article or body element ancestor.

Have a look at the below example, where we are trying to make use of the address element –

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang=”en”>
<meta charset=”UTF-8″>
<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=edge”>
<meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0″>
<title>Some heading…</title>
