That's really interesting, /pd. Has this changed recently at all? It's curious that there's a STREET tag under the ADDRESS tag, since when you export Gmail contacts as .csv there's no arrangement of the address into sub-fields.

Could they be trying to structure the data more than they did?

Not sure, they could be unifiy'ing the meta structures together ..so that cross funtional usage now becomes possible.. However, I am not seeing the STREET TAG in my XML ..

heres a sampe for me .

I get this for contacts for whom I have a land address entered (I've changed the person's actual address here but haven't altered the tags):

<Address>
<Unstructured>28 Via Delle Quattro Fontane
00184 Roma
Italy</Unstructured>
<Street>28 Via Delle Quattro Fontane
00184 Roma
Italy</Street>
<Source>UNSTRUCTURED</Source>
</Address>

interesting..its pulling variants in of data..

I have checked my contact -edit contact info = >add more contact info and still do not see a field that indicates <street>

And add another field only works for <emailID> under that contact details..
