Hello

I'm developing a web application in these days. I use an <a> tag which is stylized with CSS as a button. I need to make it disabled once the user clicks on it, using jQuery. I tried setting up something like $('#id').attr("disabled", "disabled"); but that didn't work. Does anyone know how to use jquery to disable an anchor tag?
