style textboxes as labels

I am just interested in the content of the textboxes.

Essentially, I want to make the information "read-only" by styling the textboxes as simple text labels.  Or I guess "turn them into" <span> tags.

How can I do this?

<div id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_BillingInfo1_aoebillfirstname" class="fieldformatting">First Name:<font color="red">*</font>
<input name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$BillingInfo1$tbFirstName" type="text" value="W" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_BillingInfo1_tbFirstName" style="width:255px;" /></div>

would become:

<div id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_BillingInfo1_aoebillfirstname" class="fieldformatting">First Name:  <span id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_BillingInfo1_tbFirstName" style="width:255px;">W</span></div>

The drop down lists would just show the selected option value as a label.

<div id="aeosubparaheader" class="aoebillingheader">
<b><span id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_BillingInfo1_BillingInfoHeader">Credit Card Billing Info:</span></b>
</div>
<div id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_BillingInfo1_aoebillfirstname" class="fieldformatting">First Name:<font color="red">*</font>
<input name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$BillingInfo1$tbFirstName" type="text" value="W" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_BillingInfo1_tbFirstName" style="width:255px;" /></div>
<div id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_BillingInfo1_Div1" class="fieldformatting">

Last Name:<font color="red">*</font>
<input name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$BillingInfo1$tbLastName" type="text" value="W" id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_BillingInfo1_tbLastName" style="width:255px;" /></div>
<div id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_BillingInfo1_Div2" class="fieldformatting">
