Subject Re: Sharing a session between multiple frames
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2003 17:00:33 GMT

I will try to split out the code to a reasonable size. In the meantiem I 
have found out a little more information.... and it is very odd....
The setup under Tomcat 4.0 works with IE6 and Netscape 7. When I moved 
to I moved to Tomcat 4.1 it stopped working with IE6.
I just happen to have tried Netscape and it still works under netscape. 
Now I am really confused! Iam starting to look at the HTTP headers
to see what the difference might be.
