Practical Example Using A Corporate Website Address



This revised example showcases how to present contact information for a fictional tech company, TechWorld. The <address> tag is used to encapsulate the contact details, including an email link.

The CSS has been modified to remove the italic styling, and instead, a border, padding, and margin have been added to give the address section a distinct appearance.

The content within the <address> tag has been changed to reflect a different scenario, providing a fresh context for the example.

The heading and paragraph text has also been updated to align with the new context, guiding the user to contact the support team and encouraging customization of the CSS.
