Make a checkbox look like a radio button

I don't think I can but is there anyway to make a checkbox look like a radio button? Our marketing guy doesn't understand why we need to use checkboxes instead of radio buttons if we just "tell the user to select more than one". He likes the looks of a radio button better. Is there anything you can do with CSS or anything? I guess I could do a bunch of radio buttons with a script to uncheck them, but I'd rather not.

use input type="image" ? maybe ?
you would need to change the image source onclick and some more trickery to get it to function the way you want ... but i seriously think the argument for not using check boxes is rather silly. but it looks like you might be stuck with that ...

i can't think of any easy way of changing the look of an input of type="checkboix" ... your best best might be to do like you mentioned ... and script radio buttons
