Custom <span> using Documenter.jl

How can I insert a custom <span> element in a Documenter.jl markdown file?

Specifically, I would like to create HTML like the following:

Lorem ipsum <span style="color: #f00;">dolor</span> sit amet. 

The following bit of markdown comes close, but it splits “Lorem ipsum”, “dolor” and “sit amet” into three paragraphs which is a deal breaker.

Lorem ipsum
```@raw html
<span style="color: #f00;">dolor</span>
sit amet
