My bank has a HTML select for entry of two abitrary characters of a secret word.  Quite a simple workaround to the 
keylogger issue.
 
The second issue between the keyboard and the chair is an entirely larger problem. ;-)

        How do folks feel about other techniques to make a site harder to fake, given
        that we're seeing keystroke loggers placed by spam/virii these days?
        That is, stuff like putting in a number pad made of images, in some
        random order, and asking people to "key in" a PIN with mouse clicks?

        (Then we start dealing with the fools who phone in to complain we
        won't let them have 3 character passwords like "aaa" and still want
        their transactions guaranteed. Honestly sometimes I think people like
        that should bank at sites with names like robmeblind.com...)
