Subject Re: disable, readonly bug
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2007 17:41:34 GMT
html disabled attribute means don't send the input field value back to
the server when the form is submitted.  If you want to be able to
change the field value, don't set the field disabled.  (or at least
use javascript to un-disable it before you submit the form)
