IE9 and earlier do not support any of the advanced HTML5 input attributes.  I believe IE10 will support some of them.

I understand.  But i just need the javascript fix with the code I have
Any ideas.  I am pulling my hair on this one.  Its just a simple password showing astrix and not the placeholder text that is all.  Any help is appreciated

Password already has special characteristic for its value and rendering. It is possible that it is not overridable.

Probably a question for the developer.  It is too trivial to interest me in trying to figure out how a hack works by digging through a jquery library.
