"Refer to unavailable commands and options as unavailable, not as
dimmed, disabled, or grayed. In programming contexts, it's acceptable
to refer to unavailable commands as disabled. Also if you are
describing the appearance of an unavailable command or option, you can
used dimmed, but not grayed or disabled."
