  1. dialog The dialog element represents a part of an application

    that a user interacts with to perform a task, for example a dialog box, inspector, or window.
  2. inert The inert attribute is a boolean attribute that indicates,

    by its presence, that the element and all its fl at tree descendants which don’t otherwise escape inertness (such as modal dialogs) are to be made inert by the user agent.
