It's helpful if you ask specific questions, but it's pretty clear what's wrong in this case.

Your code:

<input type="checkbox" id="shipping" value="fast_shipping"><label for="Fast Shipping" and "subscribe to newsletter"></label>br>

<input type="checkbox" id="newsletter" value="subscribe"><label for="Fast shipping" and "Subscribe to newsletter"></label>

Inside the label tag for each checkbox, your for= attributes should be pointing to the ID of the checkbox in question. It would look like for="shipping" within the first label. The "Fast Shipping" text is the text of the label itself, which goes between the label tags, not within them.

And of course, your labels should be tailored to the individual checkboxes, not use the same text in both. It doesn't make much sense to have two checkboxes with the same text label, but different actions, since users won't know what to do with them.

Your < br > tags are 60% missing too. There should be no spaces in the tag of course, but I can't get it to show up in the comment otherwise.
