Electronic mail address of a person or institution.
The email element (<email>) is allowed as part of a paragraph as well as inside an address. There are two ways to treat an email address in text: as an <email> element or as an <ext-link> element. If both a textual phrase (“the Moody Institute’s email address”) and a mailto URL are required, the <ext-link> element should be used.
