I made a page that will add a checkbox to a page dynamicly and say you try to add check 2 with the same name twice it will only select check 2 wich works fine, but if you should uncheck check 2 and add check 3 it will tick check 3 (it should since its new) but it also checks check 3. Now it wouldn't bother me if ie did the same but ie does it properly :( 

It could just be my JavaScipt style since i dont do much with it :o

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to arandomworld.co.uk/test.php
2. add new check called Check 2
3. uncheck check 2
4. add check 3
Actual Results:  
it checks check 2 when it shouldnt

Expected Results:  
check 1 and 3 is checked

still the same, although i remember i worked around it by generating the whole inner html without checked="checked" for unticked checkboxes since when you change innerhtml it seems to reload from the html. 

also IE8 now acts the same way as firefox, ie 6 and 7 behaves as i would have expected.
