[R] ? data.entry "read-only" ?

Hi Folks,

The spreadsheet-like layout displayed when 'data.entry' is
invoked is very useful simply for legible display of data,
quite apart from its intended use for the purpose of entering
or editing data.

If one wants to use it _simply_ as a display device, so that
one can look around inside a data-set while working on it,
then it is not a good idea to have its _editing_ capabilities
active: this is dangerous, since an inadvertent keystroke
could change the data.

So: is there a way to invoke 'data.entry' in "read-only"
mode? Or some other function with equivalent display which
can be run "read-only"?

[Bonus question: is there a way to change its cosmetics,
 e.g. background colour, font, ... ?]

With thanks,
