HTML <address> Tag


The <address> HTML tag is used to define contact information for the author or owner of a webpage, or for the content's creator. It typically includes details such as the name, physical address, phone number, email address, or other relevant contact information. This tag helps provide context and credibility to web content, making it easier for users to identify and reach out to the responsible party for a website or a specific piece of content. Additionally, search engines may use this information to improve search results or provide contact details in certain contexts.
By default, text inside the <address> container is displayed in italics.
