<p>If anyone is interested in the data model used by Royal Mail in UK addresses, this will tell you loads:</p>

<p>Warning: you may find yourself uttering things in "rather unparliamentary language" when you read this.</p>
<p>Contrast this with the Dutch address model: Street, Housenumber (numeric), Housenumber Extension (alphanumeric), Postcode (9999XX) and Town. Probably much the same in Belgium and Germany too.</p>
