Ok, so I have my cookie script, and it can set and retrieve cookies just fine. But if I close my browser and reopen the page, the cookie returns null. To be sure it wasn't a coding mistake that I made, I went to a website where they also had a cookie example. The same thing happened. Can any one post some code that could solve this wierd problem? (I tested on both IE and firefox just to make sure).

Did you set an expiry date? Without an expiry date the cookie will be automatically deleted when the browser is closed.

Yes, I have an expiry date set. The page I used for my second test that *wasn't* part of my code is here (http://www.netspade.com/articles/2005/11/16/javascript-cookies/)
On this page they show their code, along with links at the very bottom that set the cookie and get the cookie. I still have the same problem of it returning null. I do have cookies enabled, if there are any other cookie options I can set in IE or firefox tell me please, but I don't understand.
