in reply to cookie problem

I'm not an HTTP expert, but I think that the Set-Cookie header should be sent before the content-type.

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    I believe that Chady is correct. To verify this, you might try
    lynx -dump -source http://localhost/cookie-via-CGI.cgi
    Since you said that the CGI method of setting the cookie works correctly, this lynx call would let you view the server headers (including the Set-Cookie portion) and in what order they appear when done "properly".
