At reader level, my password field displays asterisks as I type, but in DHTML each typed character appears as a vertical bar.
When published to DHTML the password field expects the specified font to contain a bullet character. However, some fonts do not have a bullet character. For example the font "SYSTEM" is one which would show a vertical bar character instead of what looks like a bullet.
On the Font tab of the Properties for the Password text field, choose a font that has a bullet character (for example: Arial, Times New Roman, Courier).
