I would like to save the entire contents of a form by looping through the forum items (I don't know the names necessaryly) to a cookie, using javascript, so the forum can be reloaded when the user comes back to the page. Please let me know how this can be done in a browser independent way! Thanks

you'll do something like loop through the form.elements collection, adding cookies by calling:

for (var i=0;form.elements.length;i++)
     {
     document.cookie = form.elements.name+'='+form.elements.value;
     }

but 30 points is a little stingy.
