I use a checkbox created from a html string. when calling .attr() on the created element it returns "checked", but the checkbox isn't checked?

see fiddle http://jsfiddle.net/mstaab/aZP6M/

Actually it is checked. You can see it, when you append it to the DOM: http://jsfiddle.net/aZP6M/1/

The "checked" attribute ist a bool attribute, which means it is true whenever it is present regardless of its value.

Also, if you want the dynamic value, use the checked property. See http://api.jquery.com/prop for the difference.
