This seems wrong... Checkboxes are not an element

Working on my flashcards, I came across this explanation for checkboxes:

But checkboxes are not an element, so that seems wrong. Are they using the term elements in a way I’m not familiar with it being used or are they wrong?

(My flashcards for anyone else who’d like to check them out.)

If I had to guess, it’s just easier saying ‘checkbox element’ as opposed to ‘input elements with type checkbox’. The latter is also giving away the answer somewhat.


Explained that way it makes sense. The input elements seem really special, especially trying to learn the difference between all the attributes.
