HTML <input> Tag with 'type=password'

<form name="myForm" action="">
<input type="password" name="myPasswordField">


The above example demonstrates usage of the <input> element with the type attribute set to password (i.e. type="password").

The password value represents a one line plain text edit control for the element's value (which is sensitive information).

Browsers should obscure the password field so that its value cannot be seen.
