User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030507
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030507

According to the specs (html 4.01, 17.12.2):

  When set for a form control, this boolean attribute prohibits changes to
  the control.

  ...

  The following elements support the readonly attribute: INPUT and TEXTAREA.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load checkbox.html
2. Click on the checkboxes.

Actual Results:  
Only disabled checkbox cannot be changed.

Expected Results:  
Readonly checkboxes should not be modifiable.

Workaround: make the checkbox disabled.

But it still violates the specs.
