<title>How to define a span in a document</title><!-- Title of the HTML page -->

  • This HTML code defines a webpage with a paragraph containing text about HTML.
  • Within the paragraph, a <span> element is used to apply specific styling to a portion of the text.
  • The style attribute in the <span> tag specifies inline CSS styles to change the color to red and make the text bold.
  • The text "Hyper Text Markup Language" within the <span> element will appear in red color and bold font weight, while the rest of the paragraph text remains unaffected.
  • The <span> element is commonly used to apply styles to small sections of text within larger blocks of content.
