There are several options:

- use SVG to draw a checked and a non-checked box depending the boolean
- find a font that has glyphs for the related Unicode cp's (enough basic
non-checked boxes, but the checked ones don't seem to be readily available
in the basic fonts)

As for myself, I mainly use the latter and my imagination --for example: the
basic ZapfDingbats font supports a lot of empty checkboxes from which you
can choose one, and for the 'checked' checkbox, you have a choice of many
other symbols...

Hope this helps!
