Nope - you throw a Run-time error if you flush the buffer and then call 

However, I think I found the solution:

Use the Session object. Its cookie based. Set it on the first page, look 
for it on the second page. If its not there - cookies are not set.

Simple. Stupidly simple. But aggravating that I can't attack the HTML 
headers with impunity.
