When is a span a better tool than an inline style element?
I see a span, and wonder what it is for, when I can do an inline style just as easily.

"span" and "inline style" are not even close to being equal.

A span is an HTML inline level container.

"inline style" refers to specifying the CSS in the style attribute of an element rather than in a style sheet.

"inline style element" is not even a meaningful term used in HTML or CSS.

And using 'inline styles' is a laborious and inflexible way of presentation. As such it should be used very, very sparingly, if at all.
