    Smile can i retun the value of chck boxes in a hidden input?

    Is it possialbe to use 20 checkboxes (1 to 20) and 10 radio bottons (1 to 10) to generate the value for "item_name" for a Single Item Purchase with PayPal when they use (<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="">)? I want to click on 5 of the 20 checkboxes and 1 radio button and send the value in the (<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="">). I am useing javascript to limt the to five choices
    <script language="javascript">

    function KeepCount() {
    var NewCount = 0
    if (document.item1.A.checked)
    {NewCount = NewCount + 1}
    if (document.item1.B.checked)
    {NewCount = NewCount + 1}
    if (document.item1.C.checked)
    {NewCount = NewCount + 1}
    if (document.item1.D.checked)
    {NewCount = NewCount + 1}.....
    witch workes well. I use a plain radio button<input type="radio" name="item2" value="1">. I want to add the value if item1(witch should be five letters) and the radio button selection and send that as a value for the (<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="">) Can this be done or am I crazy???? Any help would be wounderful.

    <script type="text/jav&#97;script">
    msg = Object;
    msg['item1'] = "Please select 5 checkbox options"
    function getValues(f){
    var plHolder,i=0,j,cnt, newItem='';
        	if(plHolder.type=='checkbox' || plHolder.type=='radio'){
                	var j = 0;
    		          newItem = newItem + plHolder;
        var len = newItem.length
        if(len != 6){
             alert(msg['item1'] + "\nYou have selected " + (len - 1));
             return false;
        } else {
    	return true;
