Uneditable text area?

Really easy question. How do I get an uneditable text area. It just displays text but users can't edit the text. You know, like a textarea that contains a user agreement.

Thanks.

Just specify that it is "readonly" (of course, readonly textareas have a uneditable background as well.)

Example:
Code:
<form>
<textarea readonly>
</textarea>
</form>
Also note, Readonly Textarea's and Disabled Textarea's are Internet Explorer ONLY!

Dark Element, as I said... both disabled and readonly are basically the same in HTML standards; but BOTH are IE only.
