What do you mean "protect"?

Labels are not editable by default unlike a textbox that is editable, so I don't understand your question

how to add "disabled"?

I'm not 100% certain what you're trying to accomplish.... but Labels aren't editable. As far as I can tell what you have isn't valid HTML as there is no input type="label" that I can find.

More than likely it's editable because you've got the input tag.

I think you meant to do the following:
<label id="lb_p1" style="height:14px; width:92px; font-size:x-small; border:none; background-color:#1BA8E0">desc1</label><br/>

Finally, Labels are container tags and should have both the opening <label> and the closing </label>. You can read more about it here.

Yeah label is not valid but that just means the browser will default to text. As fo adding disabled you just put it in the tag with the rest of the attributes.  No offense intended, but is this your first attempt at HTML?
