No... but it's not correct HTML. What he meant by "..." was put any other attributes there that need to go there, in place of "...".
If you look at the original example code, you'll see what I mean. It works - because it's coded correctly. Better yet, download the .zip file I provided that has the XHTML compatible code and the password helper.
<td>Password: </td><td><input type="text" name="pass" /></td>
all you need to do is change the input type to "password" instead of "text"
