<input> - password
HTML DOM Password object
The Password object represents the password field in the HTML form.
Each time the HTML <input type="password"> tag appears on the form, a Password object is created.
This text input field is for the user to enter some sensitive data, such as passwords, etc. When the user is typing, his input is masked (eg using an asterisk *) to prevent people next to him from seeing the input from behind him. Note, however, that when the form is submitted, the input is sent in clear text.
Similar to elements of type "text", it fires the onchange event handler when the user changes the displayed value.
You can access the password field by iterating over the form's elements array, or by using document.getElementById().
