his code on my login page:

<input type="text" name="id" value="Your Email Address or Account ID" onFocus="if(this.value=='Your Email Address or Account ID')this.value='';">

<input type="text" name="pw" value="Your Password" onFocus="if(this.value=='Your Password')this.value='';">

I need to use input type=text for the password field so that "Your Password" appears as the value. If I change the type to type=password, then by default the text displayed in the input field is *********************

Is there some way to display "Your Password" in the password field, but when the user starts typing his password, it appears as ********** ?
