The XHTML definition clearly states it should be
disabled=“disabled” (http://www.w3schools.com/xhtml/xhtml_syntax.asp)
I also prefer the use of symbols for extra parameters.

<%= text_field “post”, “title”, :size => 30, :disabled => “disabled” %>

thank you for the correction. I did use symbols in my code but
looking at the doc

http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionView/Helpers/FormHelper.html#M000506

it uses strings, so I changed it.

One of the more confusingg aspects of Ruby. sometimes it seems
strings and symbols are interchangeable, and sometimes they’re not.

If you pass :disabled => true, rails will properly spit out
disabled=“disabled”.
