That's not true.  Checkboxes (or any form field types except radio buttons,
for that matter) that share the same name send the values of all successful
form controls to the serve as a comma-delimited list.  Perhaps your PHP
processing page is doing something funky to the returned value before you
start working with it that's causing you to lose everything but the last
entry.  However, I'd advise you to take a look at it again.
