Welcome to my world.  A good example of what I pointed at:

  You have little control over how the content is displayed on the
  recipients side.

Whether the check box /appears/ to be ticked or empty depends on the
environment: For me, using w3m to render html back to plain text it is
ticked.  For me, using a web mail client it is not[1].

It depends on the HTML rendering engine and it's capabilities with
regards to render CSS.  In HTML export the check box contains the X
which is made invisible using a CSS definition.

Of course this problem applies not just to HTML messages but also to
websites.
