Only people with access to the Interchange pages will be able to see it, 
you won't be able to see it with view page source in your browser.

That said, you can easily grab the username and password from nearly any 
source and include it in the code above, for example if you have the 
username and passwrod in scratch variables:

	my $page = 
	$page =~ m!<string>(.+?)</string>!;

You can do something similar with values or with catalog or global 
variables, you can even store them in a db and fetch them for use in 
your code.
