I'm now testing the survey and there's a little problem: if the person answering the survey checks the brands A, B and C but changes his/her mind or has made a mistake and so decides to uncheck those boxes and instead select brands D, E, F, the text appearing later on still refers to the first brands checked (A, B and C).

Is there any way to make sure this still works even if people change their original choices?

Replace the code in the hidden short-text with this - it will remove values from the short-text as they are unchecked.
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	$(document).ready(function() {
		var q1ID = 11;
		var qHidden = HH;
		// Hide the hidden question	
		var q1Answers = new Array();
		// Build an array of q1 answers checked
		$('#question'+q1ID+' input.checkbox').click(function(){
			var ansText = $(this).siblings('label').text();
			if($(this).attr('checked') == true) { // Add to array if checked
			else { // Remove from array if unchecked
				q1Answers = jQuery.grep(q1Answers, function(element) { 
								return element != ansText; 
		// Interrupt next/submit function 
		$('#movenextbtn, #movesubmitbtn').click(function(){
			$('#question'+qHidden+' input.text').val(q1Answers);
			return true;
