Not technical enough
This renders text boxes DISABLED, but not READONLY. DISABLED text boxes cannot be read by assistive technology applications, meaning users with vision problems using screeen reader programs will not be able to retrieve the value in a DISABLED text box. READONLY text boxes do not have this issue, but strangely ALL DISABLED fields do (not just text boxes). So a DISABLED drop down list is also inaccessible. We are therefore required to provide READONLY text boxes in lieu of any DISABLED fields on our screens.
So how can I make a textbox READONLY is JScript, not DISABLED?
