Depends on the purpuse.

Sometimes I use <em>, <strong> and indeed, <span>

<strong> or <em> doesn’t always have to be bolded or Italicized. You can undo that in css.
Somtimes using <em> and <strong> is appropiate (semantics), but sometimes it can also be non-semantic.

But long story short, a <span> always does the job, and if you want your span to be bold aswell, then you can always use <strong>, saving you a line of CSS (same goes for italic text, using <em>)
