Simple form

I need to insert a series of checkboxes in my book epub format. It is a simple form:

Code:
        <form>           
                <p><label><input type="checkbox" /> Item1 </label></p>
                <p><label><input type="checkbox" /> Item2 Cheese </label></p>
                <p><label><input type="checkbox" /> Item3 </label></p>
                <p><label><input type="checkbox" /> Item4 </label></p>
        </form>
It's works in Ibooks and Kobo, but not in Stanza. I need to know if it would work on a tablet with Android.

Thanks

Thank Toxaris. I realized that the Android operating system could have an app like iBooks, more flexible with epub

iBooks is not more flexible with ePUB, you are mistaken in that. In fact, it is less flexible. They should write a specific rendering engine for ePUB, but instead they use a xhtml-renderer, which is not the same.
That results standard, perfectly good ePUB coding not supported and non-standard ePUB coding being supported. It is the other way round.

There could be a reading application on Android which uses the same lazy method like Apple, but I wouldn't count on it. Apple took the easy way and decided to support only the ePUB features they like and add some things which are not in the specifications.
fortunately there are reading applications for the ipad that support the specifications better.

BlueReader is a good free eBook reader for ePub. It can also support Overdrive ePub checkout from the public library. It does not support video or audio as they are not in the specifications for version 2.

Just in case it causes a problem that's Bluefire Reader (http://www.bluefirereader.com/ ) or http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bluef...394275498?mt=8
