    Default how many cookies can be sent?

    how many cookies can i send out from one domain?<BR><BR>I want to build a SIMPLE shopping cart application and the easiest way I can think of is to have each product listing send out a unique cookie when the user asks to add it to their cart. Then the cart page iterates through the cookies that exist and displays them as the cart contents.<BR><BR>90+% of people will only have 1 or 2 or 3 items in their cart, but I need to be able to accommodate the occassional person who has 30 items in their cart. Is there a limit to how many cookies I can send out from one domain?<BR><BR>This approach seems easiest to me because I do not have the luxury of requiring people to log in and I also do not want to go to the trouble of developing an object in<BR><BR>thanks in advance!

    Default Why don't you...

    just use one cookie that you can use to find out who the unique individual is? Then, use that unique ID to query a database on your end that keeps track of all the items in their cart.
