Abhay just to clarify, Div is actually a block element, while span is an inline element. These two serve different functions. Div is a container, while span is an element that goes inside <div> or <p>. Div cannot go inside of span however, as it is a block element, and blocks will not fit into single line elements. Cheers! ūüĎć

It's an inline object on a horizontal plane. Span is an English word. Span is used in HTML as an inline element, useful for text, photos, and buttons.

The HTML <span> element is a generic inline container for phrasing content, which does not inherently represent anything. 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. It should be used only when no other semantic element is appropriate. <span> is very much like a <div> element, but <div> is a block-level element whereas a <span> is an inline element.

I kind of meant this ,also changing display:block for span and inline for div gave me an idea that div is block and span is inline https://code.sololearn.com/W8Prd4dQe9XO/?ref=app

edited code ,now you can see if you have div ,it takes up all horizontal space and you can't put a different element next to it ,while with span you can

Span is a tag used in special circumstances for example <p> my name is html <span> im awesome</span> </p> so in css the span tag will make the line im awesome any colour you wanted it to be...its often used in highlighting statements.
