Make textbox "not selectable"

I have some code in place to make a textbox look more like a label (sort of a "read only" status, of sorts).

 tbFirstName.BorderWidth = 0;
 tbFirstName.ReadOnly = true;

But, I can still put an insertion point next to the text.

See my screencast.  Notice around time index :34 seconds, I click next tot he W and it seems to put an  insertion point next to the W  (   W  |    ) but of course you cannot change the W by typing or anything, it still looks odd.

Thank you,

Tom

Try the enabled tag.  Here is an example.
<asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtSomething" CssClass="textEntry" Enabled="false"></asp:TextBox>

If I do that, do I still need to bother with ReadOnly?
