PHP Sticky checkboxes

I have a form with a series of checkboxes. If the user does not complete other information on the form, user submits, the form is redisplayed and I want the completed fields to be sticky. (I think that is the right term fields already completed to redisplay) including the checkboxes.

<input type="checkbox" name='otherMarketing[]' value="membership" id="membership"  <?php if ($_REQUEST[otherMarketing][membership]=='membership') { echo "checked";} ?> />

You'd have to name the checkbox 'otherMarketing[membership]' for that to work as written.

Or use:

<?php if(in_array('membership',$_REQUEST['otherMarketing'])) { echo 'checked="checked"';} ?>
