HTML address: Main Tips

  • HTML <address> element specifies contact details, associated with the authors of certain web sites, pages, sections, files or articles.
  • <address> can be formatted according to a certain context.
  • The HTML <address> tags contain various information such as links, phone numbers, email addresses, social media handles, physical addresses, etc.

Use and Purpose of address

HTML <address> element adds the related contact information of an author of an article or a document. This element is often combined with HTML mailto property to quickly contact the author via email.

Example
<address>
  Written by <a href="mailto:[email protected]">BitDegree</a>.
  Visit us at:
  https://www.bitdegree.org/<br>
</address>

Note: the text within the <address> tags is rendered in italics.

When <address> element is placed within an <article> element, it acts as contact information for that article.
