http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.5 says
"XML does not support attribute minimization. Attribute-value pairs must
be written in full. Attribute names such as compact and checked cannot
occur in elements without their value being specified."

So the correct code would be:
<input type="radio" name="sitesearch" value="" checked="checked" />

Hope this helps,

Dom
