Since cookies have been brought up, I tried the following code (Using
Steve's example):


<dtml-if expr="RESPONSE.setCookie('name', 'value', path='/', expires=(
ZopeTime() + (1.0/102.0) )">
         "You have cookies enabled"
<dtml-else>
  "Your browser does not support cookies"
</dtml-if>


The cookie gets set and the text that displays is from the else part, so
the cookie is set and I tell the user their browser doesn't support
cookies. 

1. I want to know if the user's browser supports cookies.

I am getting ready to develop a help page for people using our proxy
server and I need to add their browser capabilities to a database and
respond to the user the settings they have in a "layman" terminology.  I
plan on putting in a <dtml-call> on each side of the else that will
update the database.  I am also looking at <dtml-var REQUEST> which
gives me information I need.  I have searched the Zope Site and cannot
find help on this.  

2. Can I display individual parts of the the REQUEST results or do I
have to parse the results in an external method using python?

3. And then on another topic, can I create a product from a directory
tree in my Zope Server or do I have to create a product from the
beginning majorly because of the syntax used in creating a product?

TIA

Thomas
