CGI checkbox labelling confuses javascript


I'm using a bit of javascript code to get the object type of cells in a
table. However, because of the way CGI's checkbox function puts a
<label>...</labelblock around the checkbox. This confuses javascript
which says that the type of object in that cell is unknown.

This seems to be a new feature in the checkbox function. I had this
same code running under FC2 (sorry, I don't know what the perl version
or version of CGI I had running), but it does this label block under
5.8.6/CGI 3.10

Is there any way to suppress this label block?

Thanks.

Hi Greg.

What's stopping you from writing the HTML code for the
checkbox directly?

Hi Greg.

checkbox directly?
Frankly, the code is much more readable if I use the convenience
functions. I'm trying to eliminate directly coding the HTML.

I guess I'm really irked that this was added in with no option to not
use it.
