Re: Postal address layouts? - Australia

Having decided that Contacts.app (well, .debug, anyway...) is a Good Thing (tm) 
and well executed (I agree with the comments over the panel layout) I feel 
compelled to offer the following for Australia:

(Extended Address),

If I understand the proplist correctly, and haven't made any syntax errors, 
that should work and should be right. With one caveat: What is the exact usage 
of ExtendedAddress? To clarify, Australia uses the form 
"POBox/street number & street"
"City" (optional)
"State" (optional)
"PostCode" (ZipCode - VITAL).
So if what I wrote doesn't match that, at lesat now you know how to change it. 
Also, I wasn't sure if "SPostFach" was really necessary, so I just left it off.

Hope this helps,
