Address Line


An address <address> is a series of named address elements, including <country>, <email>, <fax>, etc. Any part of an address that does not have a specific name should be included as an Address Line. Such undifferentiated portions of an Address/Contact Information might include street addresses, post box numbers, building numbers, mailstops, etc. They are called “lines” because addresses are frequently divided onto multiple lines and this encoding allows that fact to be preserved.


Conversion Note: If the address is divided into lines, preserve them using this element. If the address is just a block of undifferentiated data characters, the entire address may be placed inside one Address Line element.
