HTML and CSS Reference
and use it like any other HTML or XHTML tag:
Quat harvest projections are <span class=bigger>bigger than ever</span>!
Similarly, apply an inline style to the <span> tag to modify the appear-
ance of its contents:
Quat harvest projections are <span style="font-size: larger">bigger than ever</span>!
Like any other physical or content-based style tag, <span> tags can be
nested and may contain other tags.
The <span> tag also supports the many common tag attributes. The style
and class attributes, of course, let you control the display style; the
id and title tag attributes let you uniquely label its contents; the dir
and lang attributes let you specify its native language; and the many
on -event attributes let you react to user-initiated mouse and keyboard
actions on the contents. Not all are implemented by the currently popu-
lar browsers for this tag or for many others. [ The dir attribute, 220.127.116.11 ]
