<address> Contains a postal or other address, for example of a publisher, an organisation, or an individual.
In addition to global attributes:
type Describes the type of address.
Datatype: CDATA
Values: Any convenient typology can be used.
Default: #IMPLIED

Apart from the type attribute, the <address> element is taken over literally from the TEI scheme (see http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/ref-ADDRESS.html). This attribute is added in the DALF DTD to indicate sensible address types that can occur in letters, such as eg. ‘receiver’, ‘sender’, etc.

<address type="receiver">
   <addrLine>Stijn Streuvels</addrLine>

Addresses may be encoded either as a sequence of lines, or using any sequence of address component elements.

Class data[TEI]
Content If given as running prose, use a consistent format wherever possible, for example separating lines of the address by commas, and including any postal code in the standard form.
