the two choices I am presently considering are:
1) Have a <password>...</password>
element analogous to textbox 

2) (preference as of last two days)
<textbox echo="*">...</textbox>
(default value of echo echoes chars as you type --echo ="*"
displays '*' echo ="#" displays '#'

Since you say you're implementing this, what would your
preference be?

By the way, I'll respond to the other half of your first
note in the next couple of days--
