It doesn't make sense to force everyone to have the address at a specific place in the document, does it? The <ADDRESS> tag only tells the HTML reader that whatever is written is an address, nothing else. This is what the the markup specification for HTML 3.2 says: Address: ADDRESS The ADDRESS element contains such information as address, signature and authorship, often at the beginning or end of the body of a document. The documents on HTML 3.2 say nothing special about <ADDRESS>, so the definition should be the same.
