This is basically what I want, I understand that using different fonts for the input field can give you different characters but I am wondering if you can replace it with an image, much like a <ul>.

The image you provided is created by you I suppose? I don't know of such an option, certainly not using CSS. With CSS you can use bullet images or background images on input elements, but not on individual characters of those elements, and that's what you're trying to do.

The only option would be to use Javascript. That would mean you do something similar to the wysiwyg editors. Create a hidden password field, and an editor field that fills with the images that you want. How to program this is beyond me.

Thinking about it, it is probably not that difficult:

* You push a keyboard button, and read the value of it in javascript.
* The value is put in the hidden password field
* You display a fake text-field and an image for each password character

But how do you handle delete and a blinking cursor?
