    Exclamation Menu Tree Persistence Cookie

    I'm working on a menu that is basically a javascript enabled collapsing tree. It uses a cookie to remember which nav items you have open so that when you go to another page and come back, the ones that were open are still open.

    I would like to change the cookie so that it remembers which nav items you had open from page to page, so that whenever you go to a new page the same menu items you just had open are still open.

    here is the code:


    javascript-

    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript1.2">
    
    var head="display:''"
    img1=new Image()
    img1.src="fold.gif"
    img2=new Image()
    img2.src="open.gif"
    
    var ns6=document.getElementById&&!document.all
    var ie4=document.all&&navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Opera")==-1
    
    function checkcontained(e){
    var iscontained=0
    cur=ns6? e.target : event.srcElement
    i=0
    if (cur.id=="foldheader")
    iscontained=1
    else
    while (ns6&&cur.parentNode||(ie4&&cur.parentElement)){
    if (cur.id=="foldheader"||cur.id=="foldinglist"){
    iscontained=(cur.id=="foldheader")? 1 : 0
    break
    }
    cur=ns6? cur.parentNode : cur.parentElement
    }
    
    if (iscontained){
    var foldercontent=ns6? cur.nextSibling.nextSibling : cur.all.tags("UL")[0]
    if (foldercontent.style.display=="none"){
    foldercontent.style.display=""
    cur.style.listStyleImage="url(open.gif)"
    }
    else{
    foldercontent.style.display="none"
    cur.style.listStyleImage="url(fold.gif)"
    }
    }
    }
    
    if (ie4||ns6)
    document.onclick=checkcontained
    
    
    </script>
    HTML-

    Code:
    <ul>
       <li id="foldheader">News</li>
       <ul id="foldinglist" style="display:none" style=&{head};>
          <li><a href="http://www.cnn.com">CNN</a></li>
          <li><a href="http://www.abcnews.com">ABC News</a></li>
          <li><a href="http://www.news.bbc.co.uk">BBC News</a></li>
       </ul>

        offset = document.cookie.indexOf(search)
        // if cookie exists
        if (offset != -1) { 
          offset += search.length
          // set index of beginning of value
          end = document.cookie.indexOf(";", offset);
          // set index of end of cookie value
          if (end == -1) end = document.cookie.length;
          returnvalue=unescape(document.cookie.substring(offset, end))
