I'd like a standard way to make a

  +- Group Box -------------+
  |                         |
  |  (*) Item One           |
  |  ( ) Item Two           |
  |_________________________|

It is possible to "fake" it using tightly-formatted tables, but that
requires a nightmare of code (and can break if the fonts used with it are
too large).

The idea came to mind when I saw the main graphic at www.zdnet.com, and I made
something inspired by that <www.natural-innovations.com/boo/mbtest.html>.

It would be nice to do this without requiring Netscape-specific extensions.
