I use Excel for the sites related to my own company. No one else has a copy, but there are instructions on where to find it on my desktop in the event of my incapacitation.
For a client, where several people need access, the passwords are stored with KeePass Password Safe. It's nice because the passwords aren't actually displayed- you cut and paste the password from the KeePass program to the login screen.
Keepass rocks and it's currently free but I'd pay for it.
You can't open the database without a master password, and it stores everything encrypted. Once you start using it you only have to remember a single password. :-) When you copy data from it, it only holds the data in the clipboard for 12 seconds. If you use the portable version, you can carry it with you on a USB drive. It is dependent on the 1.1 .net framework though, so throw a copy of the install (dontnetfx.exe) on the same drive. We keep all out passwords and software registrations in Keepass.

I've tried all of the above services and settled on PassPack for my passwords and all my client data. I believe they are free up to a limited number of accts. Fantastic service, allows for triple layer protection anywhere I am.
