OK, I'll agree with that - the password is not shown in the SQL pane by
default these days.

However - we need to improve your patch Hiroshi:

1) You should add the style to txtPasswd, not stPasswd :-)

2) Because it cannot be seen anymore, it should be confirmed - so, can
you add a 'Confirm Password' textbox with the appropriate code as well
please?

Thanks, Dave
