HTML | DOM Span Object

The DOM span object is used to represent the HTML <span> element. The span element can be accessed by using the getElementById() method.

Syntax:

document.getElementById("id"); 

Where ‘id’ is the ID assigned to the span tag.

Example-1: In the below program the content inside the span element is accessed and appended to the paragraph element.
