response.redirect is a server-side directive... it works by sending a 
specific HTTP header to the browser (302, which means the page 
has moved, as opposed to 200, which means all is well)... the 
header includes the address of the new location of the page... most 
browsers will just go to the new address, and it'll be transparent to 
the user...

nope... can't do it with a redirect...  you can't target that because it 
comes over in the HTTP headers...

i wish i could offer more, but i'm not sure what you're trying to 
accomplish... does the page you send the user to need to be 
pulled from the value of the cookie?  why can't you just code a URL 
into the button?
