How to encrypt local IOS account passwords at level 5 (MD5)

I would like to use the stronger, level 5 algorithm, with my local IOS database accounts.  I have  looked and cannot see how to do so.  I realize 'enable secret' will do so but seems only for the enable password.  I would like to apply the stronger encryption to to passwords for locally created accounts.  Is this possible?  Please provide brief example, if so.  Thank you!

Hey mate..

Easy one.

Just use something like the following..

"username tim priv 15 secret mymd5password"

Cheers,

Tim.
