I am sorry, it is a misunderstanding.  I had the state of the radio button
when it is pressed, not the attribute name in mind.  The attribute may be
called "ratubled", "hodagred", "grabuntious" or whatever; it does not
influence the fact that a pressed radio button is not checked.
In other words, while it is possible that the value of the attribute named
"checked" of a radio button may be "true", it does not make it checked

Perhaps you could check the specs or try it in some browser? :-)
