How to indicate "disabled" link?

What is the best way to indicate that an HTML link is "disabled" for 508

I am building a Web application. There are 3-4 links in a toolbar (not
graphics, text links). In most circumstances, all the links are active, but
under certain circumstances, one link is not active. I don't want to remove
the link when it is not active. That's not good interface design. I need to
indicate that it's disabled.

Any suggestions?
