My my webpage linked below, I'm trying to increase the size of my radio buttons and my checkboxes, but when I increase the length and width in my css file, it seems like it only increases the size of the margins, and not the actual inputs. How do I make a really big radio button and checkbox?

No it does not, I'm trying to do things that are not required in the assignment so that I learn more.

Sorry, I don't think there is a way. It's controlled by the browser.

I'm not sure how you're going to use this and which browser you use, but this works in IE8:

<div style="zoom:400%;display:inline;"><input type="radio" name="r2" value="1">xxx</div>

Open in new window
