To Add an Inline Style for Color
The following step shows how to enter an inline style to add a blue color (#020390) in a bold font-weight to
provide visual impact and call attention to the company name, Underwater Tours by Eloise. With this inline style,
you use the <span> </span> tags. The <span> </span> tags create a container into which a user can add an inline
style. The <span> tag provides a finer level of control for styles than the <div> </div> tags, which define block-
level structure or division in the HTML document. The <span> tag tells the browser to apply the chosen styles to
whatever is within the <span></span> container.
