You're absolutely right. In fact, what ideally should be used is not checkboxes but <select> elements eg:

<select name='vote_XXXXX'> <option value='' selected='selected'></option> <option value='1'>++</option> <option value='-1'>--</option> </select></option>

...which would have the minor extra quirk that the resultant form argument would be passed to the script even if nothing had been selected, but it would get the job done. And lynx is absolutely fine with handling <select>s.

Note: In the above example, I've used "" rather than '0', as "" (the empty string) can usually be considered to be (effectively) undefined, in the context of HTTP form contents.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
