does someone have a javascript code that checks if caps lock is on and displays a message balloon like windows does when your are going to insert a password and the caps lock is on?
i need it to apear everytime, but one time when the password input box has the focus and when clicking on the balloon the message disapears.

thanks in advance

From my previous post, this one works good:

even with the shift key (ie it doesn't confuse between shift and caps lock!)
but the latter one has the same problem as starfailure mentioned.

That I am not sure, I haven't seen it on any webpages before, but I suspect (if it can be done) needs a bit of styling and javascript coding to get the desired effect.
