Hello,

when verifying the following document:
<http://wwwa1.kph.uni-mainz.de/users/ulm/test/testaddress.html>
with doctype ISO/IEC 15445:2000, the validator gives me the following
error message:

   document type does not allow element "ADDRESS" here;
   assuming missing "DIV" start-tag

However, the ISO-HTML user guide <http://www.cs.tcd.ie/15445/UG.HTML>
indicates that it should be legal to use <address> directly in the
<body> element:

| 13.2   The ADDRESS element type Author's address
|
| The <ADDRESS> [W3C 7.5.6] element indicates the author or originator
| of a document or major part of a document. The International
| Standard discourages its use for general markup by requiring that
| it appear only in the content of the elements: <BLOCKQUOTE>
| [W3C 9.2.2], <BODY> [W3C 7.5.1], <DIV> [W3C 7.5.4], <FIELDSET>
| [W3C 17.10], <FORM> [W3C 17.3] and <OBJECT> [W3C 13.3].

Is this a problem with the validator, or does it indicate a
discrepancy between DTD and user guide?

Best regards
Uli Müller
