<Span> tag question

Is using the <span> Tag better to format text with inline CSS than using <H1>, <H2>, <P> etc. ?

I read some people say that using the span tag is better than using the other tags. What are the pro's and cons?

I personally use <div>'s for everything as they're universally supported and don't require specifying padding/margins.

I only use <span>'s within <div>'s if a different color/font-size/font-family/line-height is needed other than what the <div> originally had.
