    When you need to change text with a css class what do you use when you <p class=" "> isn’t an option? the paragraph tag treats the text like a block causing the line breaks.

    So, other than a <div> or <p> what do you guys resort to?


    good one.

    Note: I’m not asking how to do it. I was curious how other do it :)


    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>)
