When validating a web
(http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lehmbergconsultores.es%2F%3Fdo%3Dcontacta&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0)
validation of <address> Tag fails:

-- ERROR MESSAGE --
Line Y, Column X: document type does not allow element "ADDRESS" here; missing
one of "APPLET", "OBJECT", "MAP", "IFRAME", "BUTTON" start-tag.


The mentioned element is not allowed to appear in the context in which you've
placed it; the other mentioned elements are the only ones that are both allowed
there and can contain the element mentioned. This might mean that you need a
containing element, or possibly that you've forgotten to close a previous
element.

One possible cause for this message is that you have attempted to put a
block-level element (such as "<p>" or "<table>") inside an inline element (such
as "<a>", "<span>", or "<font>").
-- END OF ERROR MESSAGE --
