    <h1>CSS <code>:disabled</code> pseudo-class</h1>
    <p>The <code>:disabled</code> pseudo-class targets a form element in the disabled state. An element in a disabled state can’t be selected, checked, activated or gain focus.</p>
    <p>As you can see none of these form elements can be used. Notice the <code>disabled</code> attribute in the HTML.</p>
