Hi Steven,

Cookies are not my area of expertise, so someone may be able to correct me
on this,  but I think that the "domain" attribute can't be set to an
external domain, for security reasons.

Rather, it is set to specify which computers in a domain have access to that
cookie.  For example, if you want shopping.mydomain.com to be the only
server that "sees" the cookie, then the "domain" attribute can be set
