You probably know this already so I'll post for the benefit of others
who may not.

Just because a logon page doesn't indicate SSL visibly (closed lock or
HTTPS in the url) doesn't mean it doesn't use SSL to submit the logon
info to the server.

It is possible that some sites don't use SSL for the logon page *BUT*
the info entered into the form is submitted using SSL using an https URL.

The only was to tell is to do a VIEW SOURCE on the logon page to see how
it is submitted.
