“Very nice, too bad the full impression can still only be seen in Safari.”

Well, that’s sort of the point, Kaske. The idea is that we’re starting with basic markup describing the content. We then layer on some simple CSS for browsers that support it. On top of that we layer some more advanced CSS for browsers that support that. As browsers get better and implement more of the available specifications, then users of those browsers will see the finer points of the presentation. If not, what they get is just fine too. That's what progressive enhancement is about.

As for the use of a list for an address – I can see the argument for that. An address is a list of places ordered from specific to global. I’d argue that the order is important for the address to make sense, so perhaps an OL would be better than a UL. However, we could debate these tiny points all day, but that’s not really what this article is about.
