Disabled form fields are not POSTed

Was working with a form where I wanted a field to not be edited by users, so I used the disabled attribute on it.

But, it wasn’t sent to the server when the form was submitted.

I eventually used the readonly attribute to make it uneditable, yet be sent in the POST request.
