User ID & Passwords

I've been trying to figure out how certain sites (like online trading or banking) let you double click a text box (or alternatively start typing) and then autofills it for you.  And may also autofill your password.

Anyone know how exactly they get that to work?

This is a function of Internet Explorer.

Go to the Tools->Internet Options menu and choose the Content tab.  Hit the autocomplete button.

Not all text boxes seem to remember.  How does IE differentiate between them?
