This URL is returning a 404 error for me.

I don't believe there is any difference in handling between the two types
of cookies, at least that I recall.

The always-accept/always-reject option is currently stored in the .lynxrc,
possibly an idea for 2.8.2 might be to have this information stored in the
cookie file.

I'm not sure if I would always want the always/never choice saved between
sessions -- generally if I know I explicitly do not ever want any cookies
from a site I will add them by hand, but I usually hit "neVer" in response
to any cookie offering from a site that I don't want them from. I don't
(personally) want to have that stored between sessions.
