Using onkeyup with password field, secure?

  1. I am using the solution posted here:

    to eliminate one of the password fields, i.e. whatever the user inputs into the first value is instantly copied to the second. Does this present any security concerns I should be aware of?

  2. It sort of defeats the purpose of the second password field, which is to ensure that the user entered the same information twice, since they cannot see what they are typing. There is no security concern.
