INPUT TYPE="text" READONLY..not

It seems in HTML 4 - there are 2 features in INPUT TYPE="text" --- READONLY and DISABLED which is only supported by IE and Netscape's Communicator 4.05 (despite being in 4.xx) still haven't gotten around supporting them!

So, is there any workarounds for Communicator? Otherwise i may have to advise my site users to ditch Communicator in favour of IE which i don't want to... we are programming in ColdFusion (looks like a ripe cherry for Uncle Bill to takeover..buyover?) and the keyvalue in the form should only be READONLY to prevent fiddly fingers from trying to corrupt  data.

There was a question about this recently. The answer was:

<input type="text" ....onFocus="this.blur()">


The only way to change it, seems to be a right-mouseclick in the field and choose  "paste".
