How to show disable HTML select option in by default?

I am new to HTML and PHP and want to achieve a drop-down menu from the mysql table and hard-coded too. I have multiple select in my page, One of them is

<select name="tagging">
<option value="">Choose Tagging</option>
<option value="Option A">Option A</option>
<option value="Option B">Option B</option>
<option value="Option C">Option C</option>
</select>


Problem is now that user can also select "Choose Tagging" as his tagging but i only want to provide him to chose from available three. I used disable as

<select name="tagging">
<option value="" disabled="disabled">Choose Tagging</option>
<option value="Option A">Option A</option>
<option value="Option B">Option B</option>
<option value="Option C">Option C</option>
</select>


But now "Option A" became the default one. So i want to set "Choose Tagging" as by default and also want to disable it from selection. Is it a way to do this. Same thing need to be done with other select which will fetch data from Mysql. Any suggestion will be appreciable.

Answer

use

<option selected="true" disabled="disabled">Choose Tagging</option>
