In my editform.aspx I have several fields that I don't want the client to be able to edit but they should see them.  As an old ASP developer this could be done simply in code on the input field item by adding the keywords DISABLED or READONLY.

Is there a way to do this in sharepoint developer?

Here is an updated version of the code if you want to use it for multiple fields. You can simply call SetTextFieldReadOnly for each text field you want to hide.

1-  Edit the EditForm.aspx page
If the Edit Page option is missing from the Site Actions menu, use the ToolPaneView=2 URL parameter.
Ex: /EditForm.aspx?ToolPaneView=2
2- Add a Content Editor Web Part
3-  Add the following code

<script type="text/javascript" src="[YOURPATHTOPROTOTYPE]/prototype.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function SetTextFieldReadOnly(name)
{
    var inputs = $$('input[title="' + name + '"]');
    if (null != inputs && inputs.length == 1) {
        var input = inputs[0];
        var label = "<span>" + input.getValue() + "</span>";
        Element.insert(input, {before: label});
        input.hide();
    }
}
function SetReadOnly()
{
    SetTextFieldReadOnly('Title');
    SetTextFieldReadOnly('Question');
}
_spBodyOnLoadFunctionNames.push("SetReadOnly");
</script>
