Pardon my following up to myself, but I figured it'd be a good idea to  
do so.  I was initially going to suggest your method of coding seems    
quite wacky.  Then, I figured, hey, let them do what they want.  Now,   
I've thought better of it.  A far simpler way to achieve what it seems
you're trying to do is to use an array in the first place.

<input type="checkbox" name="checkbox['Name']" value="validate" />

Then in your receiving code, you could just do

if ($checkbox['Name'] == 'validate') {

Or,  if you want to loop through each item, as you were in your original 

while ( list($Key,$Val) = each($checkbox) ) {
   if ($Val = 'validate) {
      $msg .= "$Key : $Val\n";
      # or whatever it was you were trying to do...

WAY cleaner and WAY more flexible.  Now you can add new items to the 
form without having to name them in your $cb[] array.

Also, FYI, there was no need to set the array using $cb[$i].  Just
doing something like 
   $cb[] = 'some value'; works just fine, with the key being
automatically numbered/incremented, starting at 0.
