Why does the password field show too many characters?, I can see more characters in the password than I had before

PROBLEM
When I entered the password I entered 8 characters now when I go back to check it I can count 10, why?

EXPLANATION
The idea of blanking out the password is to stop people from guessing what it is, some systems will also obfuscate the number of characters too so this is not unusual.
