    We are using rad input fields throughout our application.  At various times, we disable these fields based on security, etc.  We tried the sample code below in IE and Safari.  The two browsers display differently.  In IE the input values are still readable, however in Safari they are too light.  Is there a way to update the .riDisabled class so the color can be darker?  We need to update this across our application.


    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
        <title>HI MIKE</title>
    <style type="text/css"
    HTML BODY .RadInput .riTextBox
        border-bottom: 1px solid;
        border-left: 1px solid;
        padding-bottom: 3px;
        padding-left: 1px;
        padding-right: 1px;
        border-top: 1px solid;
        border-right: 1px solid;
        padding-top: 2px;
        font: 12px "segoe ui", arial, sans-serif;
    HTML BODY .RadInput_Office2007 .riTextBox
        border-bottom-color: #abc1de;
        border-top-color: #abc1de;
        font: 12px "segoe ui", arial, sans-serif;
        background: #fff;
        color: #000;
        border-right-color: #abc1de;
        border-left-color: #abc1de;
    HTML BODY .RadInput_Office2007 .riDisabled
        border-bottom-color: #ccdbed;
        border-top-color: #ccdbed;
        color: #8d8d8d;
        border-right-color: #ccdbed;
        border-left-color: #ccdbed;
        cursor: default;
        <input id="Text1" type="text" value ="Disabled" disabled="disabled"  />
        <br />
        <input id="Text2" type="text" value ="Read Only" readonly="readonly" />
        <br />
        <span id="ctl02_ctl01_OBJ_FIRSTNAME_wrapper" class="RadInput RadInput_Office2007" style="white-space:nowrap;">
            <input value="rtyrty" type="text" maxlength="25" size="20" id="ctl02_ctl01_OBJ_FIRSTNAME_text" 
                name="ctl02_ctl01_OBJ_FIRSTNAME_text" class="riTextBox riDisabled" disabled="disabled" style="width:25ex;" />

    Hi Lindsay,

    You can simply add the desired style to your page stylesheet file if you have one or directly paste it in the page <head> tag and it will apply for all disabled RadTextBoxes. You simply need to replace the color with another one that Safari will recognize, e.g.:
        <title>HI MIKE</title>
        <style type="text/css">
        HTML BODY .RadInput_Office2007 input.riDisabled
            color: #333333;
