How do I make text in a readOnly field look exactly like text in a disabled field.

Thanks

sorry is should have been clear earlier. I know how to set it to readOnly. just wanted to know style'wise' what do i add to the element so it 'looks' like disabled.
for example 'font-color' etc.

Simply apply the appropriate CSS styles to the element.

You will find more CSS tutorials on the net than you will know what to do with.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
