    How do you enter a password into a Password Input box without showing the actual password in the html???

    The prime example of it is this board, when you make a post and have your username/password automatically entered for you they appear on screen, but if you look in the html source there is no reference to your username or password.

    I have a comments system on my website, but I've had to disable automatically filling out the users password because you were able to easily use a different userid to change users and then just look at the html source and see their password

    take a look at the javascript towards the bottom of the page. it uses cookies and javascript to insert your user/pass.. all client-side.

    ahhh, ok, thanks for that, so there's no way to do it without storing the password on the clients machine in a cookie then?
