Description

The documentation for BooleanField make heavy use of checkboxes. Since it is possible to have a boolean field that associated with another widget (HiddenField in particular), that doesn't correspond to a checkbox, this can get confusing.

See http://groups.google.com/group/django-users/browse_frm/thread/ddd098d7bcb7294d/64357ef166fc260f for the confusion wrought.

(In [11236]) Fixed #11374 -- Modified the documentation for forms.BooleanField to allow for the fact that it can be rendered using widgets other than a checkbox. Thanks to lygaret for the patch.
