ANyhow, I was wondering what is <span> and <meta>
I tried googling it, but it does not make sense for me.

From Mozilla Developer Network:

The HTML <meta> Element represents any metadata information which cannot be represented using one of the other meta-related element (<base>, <link>, <script>, <style> or <title>).



in other words, a catch-all container for meta information.

Also from MDN:

The HTML <span> element is a generic inline container for phrasing content, which does not inherently represent anything. It can be used to group elements for styling purposes (using the class or id attributes), or because they share attribute values, such as lang. It should be used only when no other semantic element is appropriate. <span> is very much like a <div> element, but <div> is a block-level element whereas a <span> is an inline element.



in other words, a container for inline content.
