Sometimes deploying a forms based registration / login solution for SharePoint, or anything else, makes me somewhat weary. Specifically, creating the system that enforces, for sometimes tens or hundreds of thousands of people, the mundane action of having to add a password no less than twice after panning ones brain for a username when registering for an account just seems so old schoolish and tedious…
A user filling the password field can easily recognize that if the colors are the usual equivalents of the password or not. And, anyone who sees the colors won’t have any idea what the actual password is.
The script can also be used to visualize password confirmations (password & confirm password fields).
