function getCookie(Name) {
var re=new RegExp(Name+"=[^;]+", "i"); //construct RE to search for target name/value pair
if (document.cookie.match(re)) //if cookie found
return document.cookie.match(re)[0].split("=")[1] //return its value
return null
}

function setCookie(name, value, days) {
var expireDate = new Date()
//set "expstring" to either future or past date, to set or delete cookie, respectively
var expstring=(typeof days!="undefined")? expireDate.setDate(expireDate.getDate()+parseInt(days)) : expireDate.setDate(expireDate.getDate()-5)
document.cookie = name+"="+value+"; expires="+expireDate.toGMTString()+"; path=\";
}

function deleteCookie(name){
setCookie(name, "moot")
}

var element=(element.type=="select-one") ? element.options : element
for (i=0; i<element.length; i++){
if (element[i].value==selectedtitle){ //if match found between form element value and cookie value
if (element[i].tagName=="OPTION") //if this is a select menu
element[i].selected=true
else //else if it's a radio button
element[i].checked=true
break
}

Javascript cookies can only be used on the domain that they were set on. And then, only if they were set for the domain (as opposed to for the page). Otherwise, they are only available for the page that set them.

Your code looks like it sets the cookie for the domain so, the problem is probably that whatever you are calling a sub-domain is viewed in javascript as a separate domain.

What exactly do you mean by a sub-domain? If it has a different DNS, then it is a separate domain.

I'm not sure about the following but, it may be true that if you have a page here:

/pages/stuff/page.htm

that setting a cookie there may not be able to be read on a page here:

/pages/otherstuff/page.htm

Is that what is happening?
