        <input type="checkbox" id="checkbold" name="font" value='bold' />
        <input type="checkbox" id="checkitalic" name="font" value='italic' />
        <input type="checkbox" id="checkunderline" name="font" value='underline' />

        <input type="radio" id="radiomiddle" name="align" value='middle'/>
