you put a "checked" inside
<input type=....    checked>

 <FORM ACTION="script.cgi">
  <INPUT TYPE="CHECK" NAME="chk1" VALUE="Yes">Check it!
  </FORM>
sends "chk=Yes" to the CGI script if it is checked. If it's unchecked, nothing's sent.

Hmmm...maybe that's not what you meant...Is this?
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
function getString(checkbox) {
  return (checkbox.checked) ? "Yes" : "No";
}
alert(getString(document.aForm.aCheckbox)); // Display either "Yes" or "No".
// -->
</SCRIPT>

Please explain if this doesn't help.

Sorry,

Neither of you guys understood what i ment. I am making a Javascript in which 'yes' or 'no' is printed  in a textarea. If the guy checks the checkbox then 'yes' is printed or else 'no' is printed.

Thanks

Use the javascript that was provided in martinag's comment. In the textarea where you want the answer to be displayed, use this:

-script-
if(checkbox.checked)
{
document.write('Yes')
}

or something like that.
