Ah, now I see.  If I'd known this was what you were going for I wouldn't 
have recommended the selection-list approach.

I think you have a few choices:

1) Create your own custom styling for fi:multivaluefield that displays 
only a single checkbox where you set its value, sort of like you were 
doing before.

2) Bypass the ft:widget call altogether and just write out your own 
<input type="checkbox" name="delItem" value="${...}" /> for each row.

3) Use a repeater rather than the JX loop.  It sounds like you were 
trying to enable AJAX for this form, so this may be your best bet. 
Either of the first two choices above would be difficult to make work 
with CForms' AJAX framework.  Personally I think this is the cleanest
