          <title> Title of the document<title>
              <button disabled="disabled">
            			Sign in
<button type="button" disabled>Click Me!</button>
  1. First, we write <! DOCTYPE html> which we used as an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML file is written in.
  2. Secondly, the <html> tag is used to indicate the beginning of an HTML document.
  3. As above now <head> tag is used to contain information about web page. In this tag a <title> tag is used which helps us to specify a webpage title. Both <head> and <title> tags are Paired tags. So, both have </head> and </title> ending tags respectively.
  4. Thirdly, <body> tag is used to define the webpage body. All the contents to show on website are written here.
  5. Here, as shown in code we use button tag in which we use disabled attribute by two ways. No worry, both the ways are correct. You may try both of them and both are in working condition.
  6. One thing to inform is that the disabled button is always grey in color and looks different from actual real working button. You can also use an id or class anything to use disabled attribute.
  7. Also, button tag is paired tag. So, we have to use both open and closing tags. The text written between these tags is the text that actually shows on the button, it may be sign up, click here, click me and click to login, etc.
  8. At last, the <body> and <html> tags are closed with </body> and </html> respectively.
