Hi my question is easy !

  font-family:verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
  border:1px solid #CCCCCC;

Now I want have a diffrent stylesheet for an input box that is disabled.

Easy answer, too. You can't affect it with CSS.

I dont want to use CSS to disable an input box. Your link is irrelevant.

Well my bad, not entirely irrelevant, now I know its there's no pseudo for input (no input:disabled).
But is it possible to use javascript to change the input:disabled box colour?

No, I'm afraid it won't react. You would have to simulate a disabled element, but there's always going to be a concern about functionality.

Generally forms are important, and people need to know how to use them. The diabled input is intuitive, and so it reacts accordingly. Bypassing the GUI with javascript should really only be attempted if you have complete control over what the user is doing and needs to do.

Try posting a Q though in the Javascript TA, to see what they come up with. I'll subscribe to it when I see it.
