    Checkbox not checking

    I've got a checkbox in an li element. I put an onclick on the li element to toggle the checkbox. This works fine if I am over the li element but not over the checkbox. But if I am over the checkbox the checkbox doesn't change (or it changes twice returning it to the original state). So how do I get this working properly?

    Edit: The code below has all the relevant stuff in it I think, but here's a link to the full online version. The checkboxes are in the fourth tab. http://bokehman.com/UI-test/

    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
         "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1">
    <script type="text/javascript">
    onload = layout
    
    function layout()
    {
     LIs = document.getElementById('choose').getElementsByTagName('li')
     for(i=0; i<LIs.length;i++)
     {
      LIs[i].onclick=function(){
       return toggle(this)
      } 
     }
    }
    
    function toggle(caller)
    {
     caller.firstChild.checked = !caller.firstChild.checked
     return false
    }
    </script>
    
    <title></title>
    
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
    <div id="choose">
    <ul>
    <li><input type="checkbox" name="choose[]" value="-1770"> 177.0W NSS 9</li>
    <li><input type="checkbox" name="choose[]" value="-1390"> 139.0W AMC 8</li>
    </ul>
    </div>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    forgive the silly question, but isn't this just a very roundabout way of making a label?
    Code:
    <div id="choose">
    <ul>
    <li><input type="checkbox" id="ch1" name="choose[]" value="-1770"/><label for="ch1">177.0W NSS 9</label></li>
    <li><input type="checkbox" id="ch2" name="choose[]" value="-1390"/><label for="ch2">139.0W AMC 8</label></li>
    </ul>
    </div>

    Man I suck. When I grow up I want to become a real web developer.

    What about the tabs? Am I missing some glaring shortcut there too? I don't often do coding any more so I'm a bit out of touch.
