Maybe we should just throw in the towel and support it?  Sigh.

	Correct, and I sympathize with any frustration over Netscape's
continual lack of concern for established standards, the fact of the
matter is Apache doesn't conform to the Cookie specification (a
specification which doesn't conform to HTTP/1.0). 
	The Apache site should probably explain this issue, indicating
that Apache's handling of multiple cookies is unsupported by all current
browser implementations.  (Are there any Cookie-enabled browsers which
understand Apache's handling?) 
	Alternatives would be using NPH scripts (as you mention), which
have their drawbacks, or META tags, which aren't properly implemented by
Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Or, if possible, use one Cookie to store
multiple data.

Take care,
