When you uncheck a checkbox in an HTML form, it will not be submitted.

The part on the above page talking about "only "on" checkbox controls
can become successful." is the key here.

The successful part links here:

This explains that the definition of a successful checkbox submission is
one that is  "on".
To have a checkbox in the "on" state means that it has to be checked.

So, any checkbox that is /not/ checked is considered "off" or
"undefined" will not be submitted because it is not valid.

Or something like that... :)
