This is correct, you cannot nest spans with the standard PmWiki, but people  
have been using nested bold, italic and monospace tags inside spans, and  
applied CSS accordingly. Something like this can be nested:

  %my_span% '''Title''' Some description ''Place or date''  %%

In case this could be useful.
