Is it possible to remove the line around the checkbox? Not the padding
- the actual line?

I guess you're asking from the perspective of a Web page author rather
than a browser user?

Setting aside the question of why you'd *want* to, the answer is "not
really". Browsers are free to draw checkboxes the way they want. It
might even be possible for users to skin Mozilla-based browsers to
represent checked as a green check mark and unchecked as a red X, or as
a bowl of cereal and a banana if that's what suits the user's fancy. In
that case the line you want to remove wouldn't be there in the first

You could use an input button and use some Javascript & CSS to make it
look the way you want it, but personally I'd think long and hard about
other solutions before building something that's likely to be fragile.
