Cookies for a domain are sent with every HTTP request.

" I thought that when a client visited a site, the client machine "somehow" knows enough to send the value of any cookie defined for the indicated domain. The above quote seems to indicate that the server has to issue a request for any cookies defined for the current domain. Does the server indeed have to make a request to the client for the cookies to be sent? If so, is this done within the HTTP headers? What's the HTTP "command" that does this?
