For textbox color change, you can define two separate classes for active and disabled textboxes in your CSS file. Create textboxes with the active class. Whenever you want to disable a textbox, just change the class associated with that textbox. You should get the desired results.

If you are using IE then its hard to set color for disabled text box but in Mozilla/Netscape you can write the following code:
input[disabled] {color:red!important;}

As in:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title> New Document </title>
<style type="text/css">
input {
color: green;
}
input[disabled] {color:red!important;}
</style>

</head>

<body>
<form>
<input type="text" disabled value="disabled"></input><br>
<input type="text" value="normal"></input>
</form>
</body>
</html>
