=== Guidelines ===
* Use checkboxes for non-exclusive options.  Mutually exclusive options should use a set of [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Radio_Buttons|radio buttons]].
* For more than 10 options, use a list.
* Checking a checkbox should always "enable" an option or change the state of an option to "on".  Checking a negative or disabling option is a double negative and causes confusion and errors.
* Checkbox labels are in [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Capitalization|sentence style capitalization]]
