Usually I want to punch people in the face, who want that, but you gave

It does work as expected (after you delete that erronous colon).

You actually want to use 'content', not 'background' or 
'background-image'. Those selectors don't work with HTML of course, 
you'd rather use "input[type='checkbox']".
