Why use span instead of font tag ,,both are doing same work


<p>My favorite font is <span style="font-size:30px;font-family:Impact;color:blue ">Impact</span>!</p>

<p>My favorite font is <font style="font-size:30px;font-family:Impact ;color:blue;">Impact</font>!</p>``


about the <font> element: This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers,
its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to
avoid using it source

So, that is why you use span, <font> is outdated
