specification error : current value of a checkbox/radio button

Dear HTML editor

 From the HTML 4.01 Specification available at the address below

http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/

I' ve found impossible to understand what is the current value of
a  checkbox  or of  a  radio  button.  The documentation  clearly
explains

      - what a successful control is;
      - that the name of a successful control is paired with the current
        value of the control when submitted.
      - what a successful radio button or checkbox is;

but it fails  to explain what the current value  is for the above
mentioned  control  types  like  explained in  17.2.1  for  "text
input".

Best regards
