Dynamically inserted rows not being submitted with form

My code below, when the form is submitted (there is a submit button not currently in this code), does not submit any of the dynamically added rows.   It actually only even submits the first checkbox.  How can I get it to save dynamically added rows?
<HEAD>
       <SCRIPT language="javascript">

       	function addRow(tableID) {
       		var table = document.getElementById(tableID);
       		var rowCount = table.rows.length;
       		var row = table.insertRow(rowCount);
       		var cell1 = row.insertCell(0);
       		var element1 = document.createElement("input");

       		element1.type = "checkbox";
       		cell1.appendChild(element1);
       		cell1.className = "VIEWBOXCAPTION";

       		var cell2 = row.insertCell(1);
       		cell2.innerHTML = rowCount + 1;
       		cell2.className = "VIEWBOXCAPTION";

       		var cell3 = row.insertCell(2);
       		var element2 = document.createElement("input");
       		cell3.className = "VIEWBOXCAPTION";

       		element2.type = "text";
       		element2.size = 150;
       		cell3.appendChild(element2);

       	}

       	function deleteRow(tableID) {
       		try {
       			var table = document.getElementById(tableID);
       			var rowCount = table.rows.length;

       			for (var i=0; i<rowCount; i++) {
       				var row = table.rows[i];
       				var chkbox = row.cells[0].childNodes[0];

       				if (null != chkbox && true == chkbox.checked) {
       					table.deleteRow(i);
       					rowCount--;
       					i--;
       				}
       			}
       		} catch(e) {
       			alert(e);
       		}
       	}
       </SCRIPT>

</HEAD>


<BODY>
<form name="Deliverables" METHOD=POST action='SaveDeliverables.asp'>
	<INPUT type="button" value="Add Row" onclick="addRow('dataTable')" />

	<INPUT type="button" value="Delete Row" onclick="deleteRow('dataTable')" />

By rows I understand the input elements : You MUST add a name for your INPUT elements, for example :

var element1 = document.createElement("input");
element1.type = "checkbox";
element1.name = "checkbox" + counter;
counter++;
