Auto Save

If active, Pens will autosave every 30 seconds after being saved once.

If enabled, the preview panel updates automatically as you code. If disabled, use the "Run" button to update.

                <dialog id="dialog" open>
    <button type="submit" aria-label="close" formmethod="dialog" formnovalidate>X</button>
    <h2 id="dialogid">Bad user Experience</h2>
  <p>When you opened the dialog, not that focus was added to the X. What would happen if there ws nothing interactive in the dialog?</p>
      <li>Try closing this dialog using <kbd>Esc</kbd>. Does it work?</li>
      <li>Close this modal with a form submission (the X): if the formmethod is set to `dialog`, the dialog will close. (open the dialog up again after you try it.)</li>
        <li>Activate the "close the dialog" button. Where does focus go?</li>

  <p>If these two buttons weren't included, how could the user close the dialog?</p>

<button id="modalless">Open modalless dialog</button>
<p id="text"></p>
<h2>Random interactive elements</h2>
<p>Before opening the dialog, tab thru these interactive elements. Then try again when the dialog is open.</p>
<p>When the dialog is open, because the dialog was opened with <code>show()</code> it is non-modal. Are these normally interactive elements interactive? They should be.</p>
