Disabled radio buttons and checkboxes are hard to see

    Users of a VS2005 asp.net web forms application can complete questionnaires,
    and when they are completed the questionnaires can be viewed but not
    modified.

    Once completed, the controls in the questionnaire are disabled (enabled =
    false).

    Many users have complained that the grayed-out appearance makes it difficult
    to see radio buttons and checkboxes, and particularly hard to see which
    controls are checked/selected. The users use IE6

    Are there any alternative methods of disabling controls which leave them
    appearing as though they are enabled? I used 'Readonly' for textboxes, but
    this doesn't work with radio buttons or checkboxes.

    Thanks
    Bill

    Maybe you can generate a page with no controls on it, just a text?
