The ADDRESS element provides contact information for a document or part of a document. Information provided by ADDRESS may include the names of the document's maintainers, links to the maintainers' Web pages, e-mail addresses for feedback, postal addresses, phone numbers, and so on. The ADDRESS element is not appropriate for all postal and e-mail addresses; it should be reserved for providing such information about the contact people for the document.

The following example, most appropriate at the end of a document, gives contact information about the maintainer:

<ADDRESS>Maintained by <A HREF="/%7Eliam/">Liam Quinn</A>
&lt;<A HREF="mailto:liam@htmlhelp.com">liam@htmlhelp.com</A>&gt;</ADDRESS>

ADDRESS can also be used to provide contact information for a portion of a document, typically a form. The next example gives users contact information to use in conjunction with an order form:

<FORM METHOD=post ACTION="/cgi-bin/order.cgi">

  <FIELDSET>
    <LEGEND ACCESSKEY=C>Credit Card Information<BR></LEGEND>
    <P>
      <LABEL ACCESSKEY=V>
        <INPUT TYPE=radio NAME=card VALUE=visa> Visa
      </LABEL>
      <LABEL ACCESSKEY=M>
        <INPUT TYPE=radio NAME=card VALUE=mc> MasterCard
      </LABEL>
      <BR>
      <LABEL ACCESSKEY=N>
        Number: <INPUT TYPE=text NAME=number>
      </LABEL>
      <LABEL ACCESSKEY=E>
        Expiry: <INPUT TYPE=text NAME=expiry>
      </LABEL>
    </P>
  </FIELDSET>

  <P>
    <INPUT TYPE=submit VALUE="Submit order" ACCESSKEY=S>
