Yes, thats what I'm doing. Actually, although my example shows a
setMaxAge, I don't really want anything more than a session cookie. But
not having it there didn't make a difference either. I had used the
HTML <SCRIPT> tag at first, but then I had trouble expiring the cookie
later on, and then even just changing its value - I couldn't change it
using the <SCRIPT> tag. :-( But I learned that the reason for that
turned out to be the redirect method I was used (see below). So I
commented that out and used Javascript to do the redirect, but I'm not
happy doing things both ways. I just wanted to replace the <SCRIPT> tag
with the previous java code and go back to using the Redirect
statements you see below with java doing the expire and not use
Javascript. Thanks for taking the time to respond, appreciated.
