Okay, just so I'm not accused of _always_ trying to find the easy way out, 
here is some JS a co-worker wrote for a "fake" password protection in a 
similar situation.


The password is "Butterfly" and the login is "2000" (or visaversa)

I can't vouch that this is "good" javascript, but it works on our intra 
with a target audience of Win IE 4.x users.
