Netscape tutorial says that <i>20 cookies per server or domain (completely specified hosts and domains are treated as separate entities and have a 20-cookie limitation for each, not combined)</i>
What does it mean ??
Can i use around 300 cookies on single html page.

Hi Ian,
You are right,i know i'm missing th logic,I'm not going use the cookies.
BUT i couldn't able to find a suitable solution for my problem,which i have asked today(Parent-child form interaction).
Still now,i'm searching for a good solution to handle large forms using HTML & java script,just think some thing like Sale order form fillup'ing.
Can u suggests me something please.

One way to handle large amounts of form data is by putting javascript to good use.
Take a look:
Specifically at the Entry/Pick From under:
2001 World Track Contest using DOM/DHTML/Javascript/ASP
U.S. Sub 4 List using my DTAble
The idea is that you build javascript objects to hold and manage the form data.Combined with generating the html on the fly and you can do some pretty interesting stuff.
Let me know if you want more specific info.
I agree. Here's the link:
