Hiding the password from View Source

Experts,

Is it possible to hide the password from the view page source? Please see the code below.
I am using a Javascript function and passing the id,password, but when I view the soruce
I can see the password in my form code where I am calling the javascript function and is a problem to see the password as you know that.

P:S: I am clicking a link to go to a different website sending id,password

This is kind of urgent and solution to this is greatly appreciated
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function gotomySite(Yourid,password){
	document.Login.Yourid.value = Yourid;
	document.Login.password.value = password;
	document.Login.submit();
}
</script>	
<form name="Login" action="https://gotomysite" method="post">		
	<input type="hidden" name="Yourid" value="" />
	<input type="hidden" name="password" value="">
	<tr align="right">
		<td>
			<a href="#"  onClick="javascript:gotomySite(<cfoutput>'#Yourid#','#getCode.password#'</cfoutput>);">Click Here to go to My Site</a> 	
		</td>				
	</tr>
</form>

i would suggest encrypt the password and put it  while sendin to your function in the argument it self decrypt it

Like this

  <a href="#"  onClick="javascript:gotomySite(<cfoutput>'#Yourid#','#decrypt(getCode.password,key)#'</cfoutput>);">Click Here to go to My Site</a>

srikanthmadishetti,

I have tried this, but it still shows the password in the viewsource. Thanks for the information.
I have tried to put the cilck event in a fuseaction and have the code in action file. It stops hiding from the link, but the problem is when I click the link to go to the other website, it asks you are going to redirect to a site which is not secure and "do you want to Contunue"?
If i say NO, then it stays in the action page and if i view the source it still shows the password value.
I am completely out of ideas what to do, really appreciate if there is some thing in CF to do this.

Thanks

yup actaully i wrote iit wrong .

The only thing i can think of is to send the data in encrypted format only to the other site and decrypt there .

when you are passing sensitive data like passwords it should be encrypted and sent
