But do you really want HTML checkboxes? The content you are creating is
static and not connected to a backend via any form of CGI. If you used real
html checkboxes, radio buttons and other HTML elements normally used in
forms, it could create confusion and possibly incorrrect information. For
example, with a checkbox, you could 'check' it on the page and change its
status, but that would not change the actual status of anything. The page
would show incorrect information until it was refreshed, at which time it
would revert back to its original setting in the rendered output. 

Maybe a better solution would be to have some images representing checked
and unchecked choices. These would/could give a better visual format and
not be accidently changed through an unintentional mouse click or keyborad
