This might be a naive question, but how does one know whether to use a Cookie or a Session for
session/state management?  What are the major differences?  My interest is in simply allowing
someone to login to a site and then be able to identify that user when they make subsequent
requests in order to send them customized content.  So, this is pretty standard stuff, but is it
better to use cookies or session objects for this.  Thanks.
