    Cookies are a little funky when it comes to IE and NN.

    You'll have to play with em' a bit, in order to get them both to work.

    it's best to set ALL formats, and to be honest, in most cases it has to do with either your "date" or "path" variable(s).

    In a lot of cases I've had trouble trying to set a path "other than" "/".

    You might check that first.

    as for the date, it's best to us a "time() + whatever seconds"..

    and for domain, always remember that it's best to start it with "" instead of a full full domain.

    I've exprienced problems when setting a cookie for a "sub-domain"..
