Here’s a step-by-step guide to using the <span> tag in your HTML code:
1. Open your text editor or code editor of choice and create a new HTML document. Start by creating the basic structure of an HTML document, including the <html>, <head>, and <body> tags.
2. Decide where you want to use the <span> tag in your code. The <span> tag is typically used to group a small section of text or other inline elements that you want to apply a specific style or behavior to.
3. To use the <span> tag, simply enclose the content that you want to group inside the opening and closing <span> tags. For example:
<p>This is a <span>group of words</span> that I want to style differently.</p>
In this example, the words “group of words” will be grouped together inside the <span> tags.
In this example, any text that is enclosed inside a <span> tag will be displayed in red.
5. You can also use the <span> tag with other HTML elements, such as links or images. For example:
<p>This is a <span><a href=”https://www.example.com/”>link</a></span> to another website.</p>
In this example, the word “link” will be enclosed inside a <span> tag, which itself is enclosed inside an <a> tag to create a hyperlink.
6. Finally, remember that the <span> tag is an inline element, which means that it is displayed inline with the surrounding text. If you want to display the grouped elements as a block-level element, you can use CSS to apply the “display: block;” property to the <span> tag.
That’s it! Now you know how to use the <span> tag in your HTML code to group elements and apply styles or functionality.
