address — A postal address
The address element defines a single postal address. It does not contain information about a person who resides at the address.
Different countries have different address formatting conventions. Address formatting is controlled by the address.format parameter.
If an address cannot be specified using address's child elements (street, city, etc.), it may be specified in untagged format. In this case, the address will be formatted verbatim, with line breaks preserved.
A string used to uniquely identify an address. The address may then be referred to by this identifier.
The address format. This attribute specifies the format of an address, and overrides the global address.format parameter for each address that it appears in.

123 Pickle St. Apt. #12

Example 2. Italian address
<address> <street>Via Garibaldi, 23</street> <city>Sorrento</city> <postalCode>123 456</postalCode> <province>NA</province> <country>Italy</country> </address>
Example 3. Untagged address
<address>Reina #35, apt. 4a, e/ Gervasio y Escobar Ciudad de La Habana, CP 11900 CUBA</address>
Reina #35, apt. 4a, e/ Gervasio y Escobar
Ciudad de La Habana, CP 11900
You may have noticed that the XML for this address isn't indented as usual. This is because untagged addresses are formatted verbatim, and so any indentation would be preserved in the formatted address. The address text begins on the same line as the start tag for the same reason (we don't want a leading linebreak in the formatted address).
