Hi Richard,

I certainly see your point, but it is tough to standardize that a 
certain style will cause a select's checkbox items to layout in a line 
when there is no standardization on the fact that a select will display 
as checkboxes to start with.  And then you have to consider the impact 
of specifying something like this across all devices.  So I'm guessing 
that this would never become part of the XForms standard itself other 
than as a suggestion which processors could then ignore.  So in the end, 
it will still be processor dependent.

Having said that, it would certainly be handy if the browser-based 
processors reached a consensus on different styling options for 
different XForms controls.
