#11 add client-side password compare to add_user.html

Mike Wright

This patches qmailadmini-1.0.28/html/add_user.html.

It is in response to a request posted to the qmailadmin
mailling list by a user who preferred that information
already entered into the new eMail account form not be
lost if there is a password compare failure

It uses javascript to provide live client-side
comparison of password2 to password1 to the Add eMail
Account page.

Matches and mismatches are identified by = and ≠
signs. I felt that everybody understands them and it
didn't require modifying any of the language files.

The placement of the javascript within the file is not
my preference but I think it's better than having it
included with each of the templates.

I've only tested it with Mozilla 1+ for linux and pc
and IE5 & 6 for pc but it should work with IE4 and
ignore Netscape 4. Does nothing if the user's browser
has javascript disabled.

    I'm not sure I understand what this does by the tracker description.

    JavaScript on the Change Password page verifies that the two password-entry fields are identical before submitting to the server.

    Ah, ok. Makes sense.
