	You can't view cookies across domains (if I understand you
correctly). A cookie set by www.server-a.com can't be read by
www.server-b.com (AFAIK).

The cookie is visible, and if you go back and forth between the
storesense pages and my pages, the cookie is always available in my
few php pages. I am told if you also go to another site entirely
though..the cookie disappears.

I am trying this:

document.cookie = "groom=<?=$groom?> expires=Wdy, 01-Mon-2010
12:12:12 GMT";

which I also thought makes it a non-session cookie, but IE6 says its
a session cookie still...

This is also happening within the HTTPS section, not HTTP..might this
have something to do with it?
