Historically, the content model of address has been essentially the
same as p -- it displays on a new line by default but may contain only
text and text-level elements like em and strong. Address's content
model has been "expanded" in HTML5. It may now contain most elements.
However most parsers have not been updated to reflect the change,
which may be the problem. Personally, I rarely use address  since it
usually provides no practical benefits.
