		<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="cuisine" VALUE="American">American
		<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="cuisine" VALUE="Chinese">Chinese
		<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="cuisine" VALUE="Irish">Irish
		<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="cuisine" VALUE="Italian">Italian
		<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="cuisine" VALUE="French">French
		<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="cuisine" VALUE="Japanese">Japanese
		<INPUT TYPE="checkbox" NAME="cuisine" VALUE="Thai">Thai
		<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="go">
