Hi Experts,
I am trying to create a preferences list in a webpage using JQUERY.  The prefrences will be selected by user from a wide range of available preferences(checkboxes).  The selected ones will be displayed in list. I need to let the users delete from the list say by clicking on a delete icon right beside the item in the list. If there are 5 items in the list, each will have its delete button right beside it. Whats the best way/efficient way to implement this? I am assuming that JQuery is pretty compatible across browsers.
Any help is greatly appreciated

jquery is compatible across browsers, that's the best thing about it.

I'd say as you click checkboxes you add an item to the list with a delete link specifically for it.  The delete link can have an event set up to delete it.

Do you have a page layout that you are already working with?

take the following approach
1) create the list with delete icon as img tag
<ul>
   <li>
     <img href=''>
   </li>
</ul>

2) put this jquery code after the list is created in DOM
$("ul li img").bind("click", function(){
   $(this).parent().remove();
});
