I have two checkboxes chkboxA and chkboxB.
If someone clicks on chkboxA, I need to check the chkboxB and disable it so that chkboxB can be unchecked only by unchecking the chkboxA.  If chkboxA is unchecked then the users are free to check/uncheck the chkboxB. (Code below that works fine to do this.

However, when I try to submit the form in ASP, the disabled chkbox value does not get posted.  I have since understood that ASP does not post disabled values during submit.  What are my options here? Any other way to make the chkbox readonly/disabled from Javascript?

I used the following code that works fine to do this :
function disablechkboxB()
    if (document.NewuserForm.chkboxA.checked==true)
    return true;
