HTML Form: Multiple selections using checkboxes

This entry is part 8 of 10 in the series HTML Form

Check boxes allow users to make multiple independent selections.

In the example below, we post a question to the users and as an example, we have England always checked.

This is done by using checked=’checked’.

The name=’country’ is the name for this set of checboxes.  If this form has a script, the value field will be used to identify the checkboxes that were selected.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head lang='en'>
    <meta charset='UTF-8'>


<p>Which countries would you like to visit?</p>

    <input type='checkbox' name='country' value='malaysia'>Malaysia<br>
