Although your question has been addressed I would like to point out that storing passwords in plain text in a data base is never a good idea.

Passwords should always be encrypted before being stored in a data base. Even the POST method sends the data to the server in plain text so the password should always be encrypted on the client before transmission.

I recommend storing password hash values rather than plain text passwords or even reversible encryptions of the passwords. This limits your liability because you never knew the actual password.

If the person forgets their password you can supply them with a randomly generated password, optionally with a short expiration interval, that is only valid for a single use and must be reset on first access.

You can find javascript versions of MD5 (128 bit) and SHA1 (160 bit) algorithms that can be used to encode passwords on the client prior to transmission on this site.

I recommend you do not transmit or store passwords in plain text.
