<div> and <span> are generic containers... the first is of 'block' type, and the second 'inline'... <div> allow you to define block sections in your contents and style them, while <span> allow you to style a sub-part of a block container, without breaking line before and after and get the max width available ( relativly of parent container ) ^^

Div stands for Division. Span doesn't stand for anything special. Good luck!

Not sure about span, but div stands for division. https://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html32#block
