Deleting Cookie from Parent Window

(I posted this on the Servlet forum too, sorry for the double post, its kind of urgent.)
I am setting a cookie at a parent window level, then with a child window I am trying to delete the cookie.
By setting the expiration of the cookie to an old date, it appears to delete the cookie from the child, but not the parent.
Is there a way that I can delete the cookie at the parent browser level from a call at the child? I am using java to create the cookie and then I update it with the child window using javascript.

Regardless of how urgent you think your question is, cross-posting is not allowed. Please choose the best forum for your question and post it there. Don't worry too much about getting it wrong -- a bartender will move the post if it would be better asked in a different forum.
