Changing element type using Javascript

Does 4.6 Blackberry browser support changing element type using Javascript?


I want to implement a password toggle function so that users can click on a link and display their password in clear.


This is the HTML I'm using (works in FF):


<input id="password" name="password" type="password" value="blahblah" /><a href="" onclick="togglePasswordVisiblity();return false;">?</a>


and this is the javascript function.


<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function togglePasswordVisiblity() {
var myelement = document.getElementById('password');
if (myelement.type == 'text') {
myelement.type = 'password';
else {
myelement.type = 'text';
