I think it's pretty weird if wrapping a span with no styles applied to it around some text changes the styling of the text.  Can you think of any other cases in CSS where that would happen?

In particular, if someone wants to make the text a link target by putting `<span id="targetname">` around it, having that change the style of the text seems unfortunate.
