Hi,
  You are going to have to use style, for example:

<html><head>
<style>
  .disabled {background-color:#d1d1d1; }
  .enabled {background-color:#FFFFFF; }
</style>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
<!--

function init()
{
  formObj = document.form1
  for (i = 0; i < formObj.length; i++)
    if (formObj.elements[i].type != 'checkbox')
    {
       el = formObj.elements[i]
       el.disabled = true;
     document.getElementById(el.id).className =            'disabled'
    }
}

function toggle(radName, formObj)
{
   var done = false;
   for (var i = 0; i < formObj.length; i++)
      if (formObj.elements[i].name == radName)
      {
        do
        {
          if (formObj.elements[i].type != 'checkbox')
          {
            el = formObj.elements[i]
            el.disabled = (el.disabled) ? false : true ;
   document.getElementById(el.id).className =           (el.disabled) ? 'disabled' : 'enabled' ;
           }
          i++ ;


          if ( i == formObj.length || (formObj.elements[i].type == 'checkbox' && formObj.elements[i].name != radName))
          {
             done = true;
             break;
           }

         }
         while (!done)
       }
   }

</script>


</head>
<body onload='init()'>

<form Name="form1" ID="form1" Action="" Method="post">
