I'm trying to use checkboxes in a form layout using css. Does anyone have the css code and html for a css layout using checkboxes. My checkboxes are not lining up with the labels, and when I click on the labels it does not check the checkbox... even if I wrap the input tag with lable tag etc.

If you want to align the labeltext vertical use style="vertical-align:middle;width:32;height:32;"

Clicking on a label does not toggle the check box - that is by design: Clicking the label shall only *focus* an input element.

It appears that if you use a for in the lable tag or wrap the input tag with the lable tags that infact you can select / toggle the check box

vertical-align on the input / checkbox seemed to fix the problem.
