Checkboxes and Radio Buttons in WebDirect

Hello Fellow FileMakers.


What's up with FMS' rendering of checkboxes and radio buttons for WebDirect? Styles applied to the actual buttons in layout mode are pretty much ignored by FMS when it creates the HTML page. It's been a long time since I worked with HTML/CSS, but I don't remember those two elements being any more difficult to style with CSS than other elements. And I see plenty of examples of cool-looking checkboxes and radio buttons on the web. Is everybody doing their own thing and finding workarounds for some limitation with HTML/CSS? I don't get why this is such a difficult thing to implement.


I should note that I have not yet tested this with v16. Maybe it's fixed in this newest version?
