If you need it to be disabled when the page loads, you need to tell netscape it is:
<body onLoad="document.myForm.mimi.disabled=true">

<FORM NAME="myForm">
<INPUT NAME="mimi" TYPE="checkbox" onClick="if (this.disabled) this.checked=false">
<INPUT TYPE="button" onClick="this.form.mimi.disabled=true">

it will work in both browsers but be more visible in IE.


<INPUT NAME="mimi" TYPE="checkbox" disabled>

TYoung - that is how to initialise it in IE only and will disable it from the load of the page.
My script will disable the checkbox at will and work in Netscape too
