I tried to set the "disabled" property for <input type="button">, and it looks like Netscape (Navigator 4.08) ignores it. The same html code works fine with IE5 (buttons are disabled when "disabled" caluse presents).
What's wrong with Netscape?

You will need to use the <form> tag for it to work in Netscape.  Just place <form> under the <body> tag and close it out ( </form> ) above the </body> tag.

As per the W3C HTML 4 specifications, there is no DISABLED attribute. I checked it with IE (4.0) and Navigator (4.5) and found that it works only on IE. It seems to be an extension supported by IE.

messentary,

thank you for your comment, but without <form> tag there is no button at al  in Netscape (IE is able to use form controls without <form> tag). The problem was about "disabled" attribute.
