not directly in html, you can obviously use the password field so that the password is not obviously seen by reading the actual page.
You can run the password through javascript basic encryption if you need to, otherwise you would normally run the password through an encryption scheme on the back end with whatever sever side scripting you are using.
Here is a link to javascript encryption. http://javascript.internet.com/passwords/text-encryption.html
