Hi ,

For a text box in read only mode, In IE8 browser, I am getting the cursor blinking whereas in IE6 browser I am not getting the cursor.
The cursor blink makes the user to think it is editable.The value in the text box will be populated by some other means . So if I try to use the property disabled, the value is not getting binded to the text box. Can you please help me to identify the fix.
