I've found that this, unfortunately doesn't work, at least with my current 
browser of choice (Firefox), which insists on making the text field 
read-only as long as there is a 'readonly' attribute present. I'm exploring 
the other options next.

I have to say, completely off-topic, that it strikes me as pretty moronic 
behaviour for a browser if you have a boolean attribute, readonly, and it 
interprets "readonly='false'" as being an instruction to make the field 
read-only. But it does.
