      The response will include an HTTP header that sets a cookie on
      cookie-enabled browsers with a key "name" and value
      "value". This overwrites any previously set value for the
      cookie in the Response object.

         great, but where is the getCookie method? In particular how do I force it to look for a key in the cookie, as
         opposed to the headers or elsewhere?

         apparently you may reference cookies like any other dtml variable, but within dtml. still trying to figure
         out how to reference dtml variables within python

        % Anonymous User - May 30, 2002 5:09 pm:
         You *get* cookies from the REQUEST, not the RESPONSE.

        % Anonymous User - June 14, 2002 12:48 pm:
         To reference a dtml variable called 'test', within python:
         request = container.REQUEST
         RESPONSE =  request.RESPONSE
         test = request.test

        % Anonymous User - Sep. 12, 2002 1:50 pm:
         There are many examples in Zope using a 'path' parameter for setCookie. Is this a valid parameter and if so,
         what is it for?
