Hello -

This is my first attempt at python cookies.  I'm using the Cookie
module and trying to set a cookie.  Below is my code.  The cookie does
not get set.  What am I doing wrong?

print "Cache-Control: max-age=0, must-revalidate, no-store"
print "Content-type: text/html"
print """
         <html><head><title>My Page</title>
         <link rel=stylesheet href="/ss.css" type="text/css">"""

c = Cookie.Cookie()
c['MyCookie'] = "Tryg"
print c

If I put javascript code to create a cookie in place of my python
cookie code, the javascript cookie gets set.

Any tips appreciated!
