It may do the trick for you, but mind that checking $page['passwdedit']
may not be enough, as an edit passoword may be set on the
GroupAttributes page, or as a general  default password in config
(the famous attributes cascade).

so to catch any of these, this code may be better:

  if (PageVar($pagename, '$PasswdEdit')) {
   ....special markup settings....

PageVar($pagename, '$PasswdEdit') returns the attribute string,
information as to which users or group of users are authorised, and
if there is a password, shown as ******.
It is empty if nothing is set, on any level.

{$PasswdEdit} can be used in pages to show this info, or in templates

(for an example of use in a pagelist template)
