in thread My favorite HTML font style tag is...

span is just like <div style=display:inline>. A quite useless tag that many HTML designers don't even know existed.

    Not useless. (caveat untested code) Say you have a css:
    Warning.*{ color=#YELLOW }

    and you code in your html
    print "<SPAN CLASS="WARNING">"My warning</SPAN>";
    all over the place, and then your phb says "make the warning section have a blue backround", all you have to do is update your css and then with no code change to current code base and a simple one line update to the css you're done!

      Or:

      EM.Warning{ color=#YELLOW; font-weight:normal; font-style:normal; }

      print q(<em class="Warning">My Warning</em>);

      Because obviously a warning is a kind of emphasis...
