Mmmh, forget about parsing the whole document to get the form which is
inside the div. I'd rather do this:

And alter the setCookie function like so:
function setCookie(f) {
   if (f.RememberMe.checked == true) {
   document.cookie = "TOSagreed=yes;expires=" + expireDate.toGMTString();

The 'this' method is almost always easier once you get the hang of it.

Let the browser do the job of locating the form in its particular DOM,
won't we? ;-)
