How do I make a checkbox readonly?

How do I make a checkbox readonly?

How do I make a checkbox readonly?

I tried using readonly after it but it doesn't work? Disabled does work, but our client doesn't like it and we can't use it.

Any ideas?

RE: How do I make a checkbox readonly?

<script language = "javascript">
function readonly(box){
    if (box.checked){
        box.checked = false;
    }else{ box.checked = true;}
<form name = "test">
Yes: <input type = "checkbox" name = "testbox" value = "yes" onfocus = "readonly(this)" checked><br>
No: <input type = "checkbox" name = "testbox" value = "no" onfocus = "readonly(this)">

{ str = "sleep is good for you. sleep gives you the energy you need to function";
