Email Address

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.

Related Elements

The elements used in an address may include the address class elements: <addr-line>, <city>, <country>, <fax>, <institution>, <institution-wrap>, <state>, <phone>, and <postal-code> and the address linking class elements: <email>, <ext-link>, and <uri>.
