Used in
The <span> tag simply delimits a portion of content (constrained by nor-
mal tag-nesting rules, of course). Browsers treat the <span> tag as an-
other physical or content-based style tagthe only difference is that the
default meaning of the <span> tag is to leave the text alone.
The <span> tag became part of HTML so that you could apply style, dis-
play, and event management to an arbitrary section of document con-
tent. Define a style for the <span> tag as you would any other HTML or
XHTML tag:
span {color: purple}
span.bigger {font-size: larger}
