I can read the cookie value from ASP, but when I try to alter it in ANY
way, it merely creates a new cookie entry with the same identifier. I'm
not sure if it's a scope issue, or built in security. I'll have to
revisit at a later date as I kluged it by response.write-ing some
javascript, but at least I know *why* it wasn't working...
