Ooh, ooh, ooh, pick me, pick me, pick me! *Raises hand*
How does IE process cookies? To tell you the truth, I really don't know.
As I've found out recently from some testing I've been doing, I get anomalous happenings if a cookie's name is just contained inside of another cookie's name.
While the stages of this bug find are only preliminary, I'm pretty sure that, according to IE, a cookie named "Journal" and "TestJournal" are the same thing (as long as they're on the same domain). I don't know if it's just ignoring one cookie, or processing the first (or second, who knows?) one it comes to.
Mozilla processes the two cookies correctly, of course.
Anyone else encountered this while working with cookies in IE?
