    Cool Encoding a Password

    I have a form on my website that people fill out and submit. After submitting the information goes to my mailbox. One of the required boxes is a password. Currently, the password appears in plaintext. Is there a way to make it appear in bullets or starts like any other site? And I still need to be able to read it once it is submitted. The code for the form is as follows (only the password portion of it):

    <TR><TD><font size="-1" face="Helvetica, Arial, Verdana" color="black">* Username</font></TD><TD><INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="user"
    SIZE="30" MAX="100"></TD></TR>
    <TR><TD><font size="-1" face="Helvetica, Arial, Verdana" color="black">* Password (read warning)</font></TD><TD><INPUT TYPE="TEXT"
    NAME="pass" SIZE="30" MAX="100"></TD></TR>
