Hello,

yes they are normally by either OS or the browser, as are all form
elements, but most can be styled, using either CSS, a proprietary system
or by using tricks like drawing an image instead of the checkbox, and
hiding the checkbox.
I maybe didn't make myself clear, but I'm trying to find a good example of
these javascript/dom/css tricks to style those elements, and maybe others,
and by good example I mean available on as many browsers as possible,
standards based and with a good fallback to the normal elements if the
tricks don't work on a browser.

regards,

Maarten
