    Default Maximum Cookie Size?

    Is there a limit to the amount of data that can be stored in a cookie?<BR><BR>I&#039;m using cookies to maintain accross a number of pages in my application - I&#039;m trying to save a DB insert until the very end when a user has checked their input and I&#039;ve gathered all the data I need from them.<BR><BR>Some form input fields are optional and some allow a user to enter a fair bit of information - in some instances up to 5 inputs of up to 300 characters each can be filled in. I&#039;ve noticed that as I fill more and more of the form fields in during testing, other fields are losing data. So knowing that I have a fairly large amount of data stored in a cookie, the fact that cookies are passed in the HTTP header and would need to be encoded, I was wondering if there are any limits to their size as imposed by either server or client?
