Cookies aren't actually part of HTML.

I suggest you start by learning to use a search engine; Google's first
hit was http://www.cookiecentral.com/ which seems plenty to get you
started (or maybe put you off the idea altogether).

Erm, did you look? It may have changed completely, but it certainly
used deeply clueless about the subject, and a minor spammer.

Oh dear - sorry if that's the case. I gave it a very superficial look,
and one or two pages seemed to be at least on the right planet (though I
don't suppose the more political bits and pieces will appeal to
everyone).

"... First the cookie is stored in the user's computer without their consent

cookie and stores it in a special file called a cookie list. This happens
without any notification or user consent ...." Gee, it's only without the
user's consent if the user's browser is configured that way. I give and
withhold my consent all the time.
