HTML <span> tag

The HTML <span> element is a generic inline container for phrasing content.

It can be used to group elements for styling purposes (using the class or id attributes), or because they share attribute values, such as lang.

<span> is very much like a <div> element, but <div> is a block-level element whereas a <span> is an inline element.
